GREATER 

LENOIR-RHYNE COLLEGE 

A Reality! 

For 1928-29 Session: 

The Faculty will be increased and strengthened. 

Three fine new buildings will be ready. 

The Science Building, Boys' Dormitory, Old 
Main, will be remodeled. 

The Library will be classified and catalogued. 

The Education Department will arrange for ob- 
servation and experience teaching and establish 
work in the psychological laboratory. 

Reception by the Southern Association of Col- 
leges is pending completion of building program. 
All standards have been attained. 

Lenoir^Rhyne College was established and is sup- 
ported by the Lutheran Church of North Carolina 
specifically and particularly for the education of 
Lutheran boys and girls. Others are very welcome. 
But if our own children are not served why have 
a Lutheran Church School? 

Make application early. We hope to fill Mauney 
Hall by the first of June. When our quota of stu- 
dents is secured no further applications can be ac- 
cepted. 

For catalogue or information address, 
The President 
Lenoir-Rhyne College - - Hickory, N. C.

Report oi the President 

Dear Brethren in Christ: — 

Under the providence of a loving Heavenly Father we have 
come together again as a Synod, in our one hundred and twenty- 
fourth annual convention. The work of the Synod has gone stead- 
ily forward as a whole since we last met, and the Lord has blest 



14. Proceedings of United Evangelical 



us with favors both spiritual and temporal. A number of our 
ministerial brethren suffered spells of sickness, at one time or 
another, but we are gratified that we can report that all have re- 
gained their health in the main, and are able to look after their 
work again. It is with pleasure that we note here the continued 
good health and activity of the two senior members of our Synod, 
the Rev. L. A. Bikle, D.D., who is in his ninety-fourth year, and 
the Rev. G. H. Cox, D.D., who will be ninety at his next birthday. 
We hope to have their presence and counsel in this convention. 

We have had one drawback to contend with during the year, 
and that is the continued difficulty of securing and maintaining 
a sufficient number of pastors to fill all of our pastorates. We 
believe that this condition could be improved, if vacant congrega- 
tions would follow more closely the recommendations of the Synod 
in regard to cooperating with the President of Synod in their 
efforts to secure pastors. Also, the cooperation of all pastors in 
this same line will be of immense help. 

The Synod counts herself highly favored to be privileged to 
hold this convention in the new and beautiful Augsburg Lutheran 
Church of Winston-Salem, and we feel sure that all will, when 
they return home from this meeting, carry new inspiration by 
having observed the marked progress of Lutheranism in the rap- 
idly growing twin-city. We shall also feel deeply grateful to 
Rev. S. W. Hahn, the pastor, and his congregation for their kind 
hospitality and favors shown us while in their midst. 

Herewith I submit an outline of my official acts during the 
year, together with other information, for the review and con- 
sideration of Synod at this convention.

VIII. — Cornerstone Layings. 

1. — On Sunday, April the 3rd, 1927, I preached the sermon and 
laid the cornerstone of the new Holy Trinity Church at Troutman, 
assisted by Rev. John L. Morgan, the pastor of the congregation, 
who conducted the services. The Holy Communion was adminis- 
tered following the cornerstone laying. The church is now com- 
pleted, but the pews for the main auditorium have not been in- 
stalled, and therefore the congregation is worshiping in the Sunday 
School apartments in the basement. This is a splendid church in 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 17 



every way, and will stand as a lasting monument to the untiring 
efforts of Pastor Morgan, and the hearty cooperation of his con- 
gregation, in building it. The church and parsonage together are 
easily worth around $45,000. 

2. — Sunday, June the 5th, 1927, was a notable day for St. Mark's 
Church, near Blowing Rock. The first part of the program was 
an address to the Sunday School, by Mr. C. F. Ritchie of Concord, 
N. C. Then came the cornerstone laying by Rev. J. A. Yount, pas- 
tor of the congregation, at which time greetings were brought by 
Rev. N. D. Yount, Rev. H. W. Jeffcoat, Student J. D. Sheppard, 
Mrs. J. L. Morgan, President of the Women's Synodical Mission- 
ary Society, Miss Amelia D. Kemp, Executive Secretary of the 
United Women's Missionary Society, and by your President for 
the Synod. Following the cornerstone laying, the chairman of 
the building committee, Mr. Jethro Boliek, presented the keys of 
the building to Pastor J. A. Yount, by whom in turn they were 
handed to Miss Amelia D. Kemp, who unlocked and opened the 
church door, and the whole congregation followed in procession 
into the church for the dedication services which were in charge 
of the President of Synod. Scripture was read by Rev. N. D. 
Yount, and prayer offered by Rev. H. W. Jeffcoat, both former 
pastors of the mission congregation. The sermon was preached 
by Rev. J. F. Seibert, D.D., Executive Secretary of the Board of 
Home Missions. Dinner was served in the grove, and after the 
recess the pastor was installed by the President of Synod, as- 
sisted by Rev. W. H. Jeffcoat, Rev. W. A. Deaton, D.D., and Rev. 
W. A. Lutz. Miss Cora Pearl Jeffcoat, the parish helper, was in 
charge of the music for the occasion. This church was built dur- 
ing the summer of 1926, under the supervision of Student J. D. 
Sheppard, and was reported in last year's minutes. 

3. — The cornerstone of the new St. Luke's Church at Tyro was 
laid on Sunday, August the 14th, 1927, by Rev. C. R. Pless, the 
pastor of the congregation, with the assistance of your Presi- 
dent. Following the cornerstone laying, the formal opening of 
the church took place, for which occasion I preached the sermon 
and Pastor Pless had charge of the services. A number of mem- 
bers were received into the church, and the Lord's Supper was 
administered. At the afternoon service, greetings were offered 
by Eev. B. S. Brown, Rev. R. B. Sigmon, and Mr. J. L. Fisher, 
Mayor of the City of Salisbury. In these services the keys of the 
church were turned over to the pastor by Mr. Lenard, the chair- 
man of the building committee. This church is provided with 
class rooms for Sunday School, and is arranged for furnace heat, 
and is modern in its equipment, and is easily worth $24,000.

4. — The cornerstone of Mt. Pleasant Church of the Watauga 
Pastorate was laid and the church dedicated on Sunday, August 
the 21st, 1927. Rev. W. A. Deaton, D.D., the pastor of the con- 
gregation, laid the cornerstone and I conducted the dedicatory 
service and preached the sermon for the occasion. Scripture was 
read and prayer offered by Rev. N. D. Yount who had been pas- 
tor of this congregation when the church was built. Following 
these services the Holy Communion was administered. 

5. — The Landis Congregation is finishing up a beautiful new 
brick church, for which the cornerstone was laid August the 29th, 
1927, by the pastor, Rev. C. 0. Lippard, assisted by Rev. P. D. 
Risinger and Rev. B. S. Brown, D.D., both former pastors of the 
congregation. Your President was scheduled to have had part 
in these services, but was prevented from doing so on account 
of a prolonged meeting of the College Board at Hickory, which 
he was attending at that time. The name of this congregation has 
been changed, while building the new church, from that of Landis 
Lutheran Church to Trinity Lutheran Church. The church is 
provided with basement and class rooms for Sunday School, is 
furnace heated, lighted and fitted up with modern equipment 
throughout. The auditorium will seat around four hundred peo- 
ple, and is churchly in appearance and arrangement. A good 
deal of labor and material were donated in this building, so that 
it would be difficult to tell just what the church will cost all told, 
but it is safe to say that when finished and furnished it will be 
easily worth $25,000. The basement was opened for use on the 
second Sunday in January of this year, and the congregation will 
worship here until pews and other furniture are installed in the 
main auditorium. In order to complete the job the congregation 
has had to borrow several thousand dollars, which it will carry 
through building and loan arrangement. 

6. — On Sunday afternoon of September the 25th, 1927, I laid 
the cornerstone of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, in Andrews, 
N. C, assisted by Rev. W. H. Lefstead, pastor of the congregation. 
I preached in the morning when services were held in the hall 
where the congregation worshiped all the while before it had a 
church to worship in, and also made a talk at the cornerstone lay- 
ing. Greetings were brought from the Women's Synodical Mission- 
ary Society by Mrs. J. L. Morgan, the President of the Society. 
Also, greetings were offered by the pastors of the Methodist and 
Baptist churches, respectively, of the town of Andrews. Pastor 
Lefstead had charge of the services, and Miss Nellie Park, the 
parish helper, had charge of the music, and Mrs. Giles Cover 
played the organ for the occasion. The church is now about com- 
pleted, and will soon be ready for dedication. For further infor- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 19 



mation in the regard to this church, see Report of Mission Com- 
mittee. 

7. — St. James' congregation of Concord is building a beautiful 
and commodious new church, which is located on one of the most 
prominent corners in the city. The cornerstone of this building 
was laid on Sunday afternoon of October the 9th, 1927, in charge 
of Rev. L. A. Thomas, the pastor of the congregation, with the 
assistance of your President and Rev. H. B. Schaeffer, President 
of Lenoir-Rhyne College. The church is of gray Indiana Lime- 
stone which makes a very fine appearance. The main auditorium 
will seat about six hundred people, and is designed according to 
true Lutheran arrangement, with spacious chancel which provides 
for the choir on either side. A basement underneath the main 
church, and an annex in the rear, with suitable class rooms, make 
provision for modern Sunday School and other organized work of 
the congregation. This church, when finished, will take rank 
with the best churches in the state. Pastor Thomas and his con- 
gregation are making a distinct contribution, in the building of 
this church, to the strengthening of Lutheranism in the city of 
Concord, and also in the State at large. The church with its 
furnishings, and the lot included, will represent a valuation of 
around $220,000. 

8. — I also took part in the cornerstone laying for the New Dor- 
mitory and for the New Administration Building of Lenoir-Rhyne 
College, which took place on September the 19th and 28th, respec- 
tively, 1927. A full report of these services and the buildings 
will more properly come in the report of the college boards, how- 
ever we desire to express here the deep interest of the Synod in 
the splendid work which the college management and the board 
of trustees are doing in putting up these splendid buildings. Es- 
pecially does the Synod appreciate the generous gifts of Mr. D. 
E. Rhyne and of the Mauney families, which make possible these 
two buildings at this time. 

IX. — Dedications. 

1. — The dedications of St. Mark's Church near Blowing Rock 
and Mt. Pleasant Church of the Watauga Pastorate have already 
been reported under the heading of Cornerstone Laying. 

2. — A few years ago Friedens Church was remodeled and new 
pews installed, and within the past year new altar, pulpit, lectern 
and other chancel furniture were secured, and hence the church 
and its new furhnisings were dedicated anew on Sunday, June 
the 5th, 1927. Owing to the fact that I was scheduled for the 
dedication services at Blowing Rock that day, I authorized Rev. 
E. A. Shenk, President of the Eastern Conference to take my 



20 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



place in the services at Friedens, which he did and, with the 
assistance of the pastor, Rev. G. W. McClanahan, performed the 
act of dedication. The outlay for the improvements and furni- 
ture for this church was around $4,000. 

3. — St. Mark's Church of the Crouse Pastorate was dedicated 
on Sunday, August the 28th, 1927, by Rev. F. M. Speagle, the pas- 
tor, by authorization of the President of Synod who had other 
engagements and could not be at this dedication. The sermon 
for the occasion was preached by Rev. H. B. Schaeffer, President 
of Lenoir-Rhyne College. Rev. L. L. Lohr, D.D., and Rev. A. M. 
Huffman had part in these services. This church was built a few 
years ago while Rev. C. 0. Lippard was pastor there, and report 
was made of it at that time. This church with its land and furni- 
ture is worth not less than $15,000. 

4. — On Sunday, October the 2nd, 1927, I dedicated anew St. 
Stephen's Church with its new Sunday School building, being as- 
sisted in these services by Rev. C. N. Yount, the pastor of the 
congregation. The dedicatory sermon was preached in the morn- 
ing, and in the afternoon addresses were made by Rev. H. B. 
Schaeffer, President of Lenoir-Rhyne College, and by Rev. S. White 
Rhyne, Secretary of Sunday School Work in the Southern Synods. 
The new Sunday School building is equipped with class rooms 
which adds very much to the success of the school work of the 
congregation. These improvements cost, with equipment, in the 
neighborhood of $6,000. 

5. — Grace Church in Thomasville was dedicated on Sunday, 
November the 27th, 1927. I performed the act of dedication and 
preached the sermon, and Rev. G. O. Ritchie, the pastor, had charge 
of the services. At. the afternoon service, greetings were brought 
by Mrs. J. L. Morgan, President of the Women's Synodical Mis- 
sionary Society, by Rev. C. R. Pless of Tyro, N. C, a neighboring 
pastor, and by a representative of the City Ministers' Association. 
This church was built a few years ago, under the pastoral leader- 
ship of Rev. N. D. Bodie, but the basement was not then finished, 
for the reason that funds were not available for it at that time. 
Recently this part was finished up, and the remainder of the 
debt on the church was paid off by the congregation, amounting 
in all to nearly $3,000. In this count should also be noted the 
repainting of the wood work of the entire church, inside and out- 
side, and the furniture freshened up. 

X. — Opening of New Churches. 

1. — Reference has already been made, under another heading 
in this report, to the opening of St. Luke's Church of Tyro, and of 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 21 

St. Mark's Church near Blowing Rock. Also, mention has been 
made of the fact that the Troutman and Landis churches have 
begun holding services in their Sunday School apartments, which 
they will use until furniture can be installed in the main audi- 
toriums. 

2. — Augsburg congregation of Winston-Salem, whose guests we 
are during this convention, formally opened their beautiful new 
church on Sunday, September the 4th, 1927. Rev. S. W. Hahn, 
the pastor, had full charge of the services and preached the open- 
ing sermon that morning. The house was well filled, and every- 
one was delighted and happy over the auspicious occasion. The 
sermon that night was preached by your President, when again a 
fine audience was present. This building being constructed, as 
it is, of stone, and provided with basement and annex with class 
rooms for Sunday School work and other activities of the con- 
gregation, stands for both permanency and progress of a greater 
Lutheran Church in this growing city. The church will seat be- 
tween four and five hundred people, and everything is arranged 
in keeping with Lutheran requirements, and presents a worshipful 
atmosphere throughout. We have not been given an estimate of 
this church with its furnishings and the lot combined, but it 
would probably be around $150,000. 

XL — Other Improvements. 

1. — Beth Eden congregation of Newton is building a beautiful 
new brick church, which stands on the corner lot where the par- 
sonage was removed from to make room for it. The church has 
a full basement and an annex in the rear of the main auditorium 
for Sunday School and other needs of the congregation. The 
building will be equipped with modern conveniences throughout, 
and will be one of the best churches in the Synod. Much credit 
is due Rev. A. R. Beck, D.D., the pastor of the congregation, for 
this splendid building. In the first place the plans were designed 
by him, and then he gave much time and labor in looking after 
the building and in helping in various ways. The congregation 
also merits commendation for this splendid piece of work. We 
have not learned what amount the congregation counts on spending 
on this building, but it would seem to us, comparing it with other 
churches of which we know, that it could safely be valued at not 
less than $35,000, counting the church lot and the furnishings. 

2. — Mt. Calvary congregation of Claremont has built a Sunday 
School annex to its church, with class rooms for the different 
grades, which adds very much to the usefulness of their property. 
The improvements were planned while Rev. J. C. Dietz was pastor 



22 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

of the church, but he moved to another pastorate before work was 
begun on the building. The main church was repainted inside and 
outside, so that all looks new and inviting. These improvements 
cost around $1,800. 

3. — Calvary Lutheran Church of Concord, where Rev. M. L. Kes- 
ter is pastor, finished paying off the balance of $3,000.00 on its 
church debt during the past year. They want to secure new fur- 
niture which will probably cost close to $2,000.00, and have a bal- 
ance of $1,000.00 yet due on their parsonage. Otherwise their 
property, which cost all told $32,000.00, is free of debt. Pastor 
Kester has done a splendid work in this field, and his congrega- 
tion deserves commendation for the courage which it has dem- 
onstrated. 

4. — The First Lutheran Church of Greensboro, Rev. E. A. Shenk, 
pastor, paid off $1,000.00 of its church debt during the past year. 

5. — The new Bethpage Church of Crouse has been finished, 
though the pews and other furniture have not yet been installed. 
This is a brick church, with full basement, with arrangement for 
furnace heat, and is modern in its equipment generally. The en- 
tire plant will represent a cost of about $25,000. Rev. F. M. 
Speagle, the pastor, and his congregation deserve commendation 
for this splendid accomplishment, which means an advanced step 
for that congregation and community. 

6. — Cobles Church of which Rev. D. I. Offman is pastor, has 
been practically finished, and is one of the best churches in that 
surrounding county. It is planned to have everything in readiness 
for the Eastern Conference to hold its next meeting there some- 
time in May of this year. This church with its furnishings is eas- 
ily worth $10,000, though it did not cost that much, due to the fact 
that much of the labor and material was given and no account 
made for it. 

7. — Haven Lutheran Church of Salisbury, Rev. B. J. Wessinger, 
pastor, has bought additional land adjoining their church lot, and 
has built a new seven-room brick parsonage on the corner of 
their newly acquired lots. The parsonage is provided with full 
size basement, furnace heated, and is modern throughout in every 
way. The church and parsonage grounds have been graded and 
beautified, so that the whole plant presents an inviting appear- 
ance. The total outlay for these purchases and building with 
improvements was around $20,000. 

8.— St. Matthew's Church of Wilmington, Rev. B. E. Petrea, 
pastor, has finished paying for their new church lot, which cost 
them $5,000. This lot is in a different section of the city from 
where the old church is located, and in a splendid residence com- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 23 



munity. It is hoped to build a good church here as soon as ar- 
rangements can be worked out for funds with which to do it. 

9. — The new St. James' Church at Rockwell, where Rev. C. P. 
Fisher is pastor, will soon be completed. It is hoped to be ready 
for use early in the spring of this year, or as soon as the pews 
and other furniture come and are set up. The congregation has 
already been using the basement for almost a year. One of the 
commendable things about the building of this church, is the fact 
that the congregation has been raising the money and paying as 
they go, which will leave no burdensome debt to worry over when 
the church is finished. They will have a property here, when 
everything is counted, which is worth at least $35,000. 

10. — Union Church, of which Rev. J. C. Dietz is pastor, is build- 
ing a new modern eight-room brick parsonage, which they hope 
to have ready for use by the early part of the coming Spring. 
The new parsonage is located further from the church and grave- 
yard than the old one is, and will be quite a credit to both pastor 
and congregation as a mark of advancement. It is planned also 
to recover the church as soon as the parsonage is finished. These 
improvements will represent a cost of around $6,000. Also, the 
balance of $1,250.00 on Sunday School building and heating plant 
was paid. 

11. — Emmanuel's Church of the Rockwell Pastorate, also under 
the pastoral leadership of Rev. C. P. Fisher, has finished up the 
remodeling of its church and has completed its new Sunday School 
annex with class rooms, all of which is now in use and adds very 
much to the improvement of the church plant. New furniture has 
been installed in the main auditorium and everything looks as if 
it were a new church throughout. These improvements represent 
a cost of about $12,000. 

XII. — Pension Fund. 

The Campaign for the $4,000,000.00 Pension Fund for retired 
ministers, and widows and orphans of deceased ministers, has en- 
gaged the attention of our pastors and congregations for the last 
several months. Following the instructions of Synod at its last 
convention, a special committee has been appointed to handle this 
campaign in our Synod. Mr. J. L. Fisher of Salisbury, N. C, has 
been appointed as General Chairman, and Messrs. J. C. Sigmon, 
H. E. Isenhour, W. A. Ridenhour, A. R. Rhyne, W. L. Kinney 
and Prof. K. B. Patterson have been appointed as Group Chair- 
men, together with the Conference Presidents, to handle this un- 
dertaking for us. Let us hope that by the time Synod is in session 
this fund will have been raised, and that our Synod will come 



24 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



up in full with her quota. Where the subject is carefully pre- 
sented and the people become fully acquainted with the movement, 
we may expect hearty cooperation and liberal response. Hence, 
we would urge that all pastors and laymen make full use of every 
opportunity to present this cause to the people and to encourage 
its support. 

XIII. — Conferences, 

Regular meetings were held by each of the three Conferences 
during the year. These meetings were well attended and the 
programs were well carried out. One of the chief objectives to 
engage the attention of the Conferences recently has been the 
Campaign for the $4,000,000.00 Pension Fund by the United Lu- 
theran Church, which campaign has been organized along Con- 
ference lines. Our three Conference Presidents have shown active 
interest in this campaign and the subject has been considered in 
conventions of Conference. It is very helpful to Synod and to the 
Church at large for our Conferences to give liberal time to the 
consideration of the present objectives of the Synod and the United 
Lutheran Church. Our people do not hear enough about what the 
Church is planning and trying to do, which makes it difficult to 
get the support which we ought to have for the Church. Our 
Conferences have an opportunity to help along these lines, by pre- 
paring programs and speakers which will bring out these matters. 
The Presidents of the respective Conferences are: 

Rev. P. D. Risinger, Troutman, N. C, Western Conference. 

Rev. E. H. Kohn, D.D., Mt. Holly, N. C, Southern Conference. 

Rev. E. A. Shenk, Greensboro, N. C, Eastern Conference. 

XIV.— Deaths. 

The Lord has been gracious to us as a Synod in that the lives 
of all of our ministerial brethren have been spared since we last 
met in convention, for which we should give Him our heartfelt 
thanks. 

Mrs. Barbara Hunt Senter, wife of Rev. J. M. Senter, D.D., was 
called to her heavenly reward on April the 20th, 1927. Funeral 
services were conducted at Salem Lutheran Church, where Dr. 
Senter is pastor, and also at Bethel Lutheran Church, Crouse, 
N. C, where she was buried. Revs. C. O. Lippard, W. G. Cobb, 
C. K. Rhodes, B. J. Wessinger, F. M. Speagle and myself were 
present and had charge of the services. 

On Thursday, August the 18th, 1927, Mrs. Sadie Durr Keever, 
wife of Rev. E. F. Keever, D.D., passed into life. Funeral ser- 
vices were conducted in St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Wilming- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 25 



ton, N. C, where Dr. Keever is pastor, by Rev. K. P. Otten, Rev. 
H. J. Pflum, and myself, and her body laid to rest in Oakdale 
Cemetery in the city of Wilmington. 

Prof. Phillip Emmanuel Wright was called into life on March 
the 5th, 1927. Prof. Wright was a graduate from Mt. Airy The- 
ological Seminary, and preached occasionally where supply ser- 
vices were needed, but was never ordained, but spent his life in 
the teaching profession. His last work was that of Professor of 
Latin and Greek in Lenoir-Rhyne College. 

Hon. Louis M. Swink entered upon life May the 18th, 1927. 
Mr. Swink was a member of the Executive Committee of Synod, 
a member of the Board of Educational Institutions of our Synod, 
and a member of the Executive Board of the United Lutheran 
Church in America, in all of which places he rendered a great and 
unselfish service to his Church. 

Sincere sympathy is hereby offered to the sorrowing members 
of all of these bereft families. 

XV. — Loan and Gift Fund. 

It is sincerely to be hoped that the good efforts of the Synod- 
ical Brotherhood to raise a Loan and Gift Fund of $100,000.00 
for the promotion of Home Missions within our own Synod will 
be crowned with success before another year passes away. The 
Synod greatly needs this help in her efforts to meet the many 
and urgent calls of our new missions for help, in the purchase 
of lots for churches and in putting up churches. 

XVI. — Miscellaneous Matters. 

1. — I attended a Conference of the Presidents of the United 
Lutheran Church, which was held in Chicago on November the 
1st, 1927, under the supervision of President F. H. Knubel, D.D., 
LL.D. These meetings are in. no sense legislative, but they offer 
opportunities for an exchange of ideas and experiences of the vari- 
ous presidents, and for suggestions for the improvement of the 
work of the Church in various lines. On the following two days, 
November 2-3, we were invited into a conference, at the same 
place, pertaining to the launching of the Campaign for the $4,- 
000,000.00 Pension Fund, which was conducted under the direc- 
tion of the Board of Ministerial Pensions. Mr. J. L. Fisher, who 
is a member of that Board, and the three Presidents of our Con- 
ferences, namely Rev. E. A. Shenk, Rev. P. D. Risinger, and Rev. 
E. H. Kohn, D.D., had also been invited and were at this meeting. 

2. — We note here with appreciation the fact that the Luther 
League of America held its Biennial Convention in St. John's 



26 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Lutheran Church of Salisbury, N. C, July 2-5, 1927. This was 
an inspiring meeting, and afforded an opportunity for many of 
our North Carolina Lutherans to attend, who would not have 
been able to have done so if the convention had not been in our 
midst. One of our own state Luther Leaguers, Miss Rosa Sox 
of Hickory, was elected Vice President of the League. 

3. — I assisted in the unveiling of a memorial tablet in memory 
of Miss Constance Cline of Concord, N. C, in St. Mark's Lutheran 
Church, Blowing Rock, on September the 4th, 1927. Addresses 
for the occasion were made by Mrs. J. L. Morgan and by Mrs. 
John M. Cook, President and Treasurer, respectively, of the Wom- 
en's Synodical Missionary Society, of which Miss Cline had been 
a lifelong faithful member. Rev. J. A. Yount, pastor of the 
congregation, had charge of the services, and Miss Cora Pearl 
Jeffcoat looked after the music for the occasion. 

4. — It is with gratification that we note here the organization 
of a new Lutheran church in the city of Charlotte, N. C, which 
took place on New Year's Day, 1928. Rev. J. F. Crigler, D.D., 
pastor of St. Mark's Lutheran Church of that city, Rev. A. D. R. 
Hancher, D.D., Superintendent of Missions, and myself were pres- 
ent and took part in the services. Other ministers present were, 
Revs. W. A. Lutz, S. White Rhyne, E. H. Kohn, D.D., and Dr. 
E. C. Cooper. There were ninety-two names read out and en- 
rolled in the new organization that day, a constitution was adopted, 
officers were elected and installed, and a budget of $5,000.00 for 
the first year was adopted. The name chosen for the new congre- 
gation is St. Luke's Lutheran Church. The church council was 
authorized to make application to Synod for enrollment at this 
convention. This was an auspicious beginning for a new church, 
and the hopes for its success and usefulness are no less prom- 
ising. 

5. — It will be the duty of this body to elect delegates to the Erie 
Convention of the United Lutheran Church in America, and also 
to the United Synod in the South, which meetings will be held 
in October next, beginning about the 9th. This Synod is entitled 
to one minister and one lay delegate for every ten pastoral dis- 
tricts or major fraction thereof. 

6. — Macedonia congregation of the St. Martin Pastorate, near 
Millingport, N. C, having lost the most of its membership by re- 
moval to other communities, has decided to disband as an organi- 
zation and transfer the remaining members to neighboring Lu- 
theran churches. Wherefore the church property has been sold and 
the proceeds donated to the Ministerial Pension Fund of the United 
Lutheran Church. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 27 



XVII. — Conclusion. 

A great many matters with which I have had to deal during 
the year were handled through the Executive Committee of Synod, 
the Committee on Missions, the Committee on Ministerial Educa- 
tion, and such other committees and agencies as the work called 
for, and will be reported to Synod in those connections, and there- 
fore will not appear in this report. Since the reorganization of 
the home mission activities under the Board of American Missions, 
more responsibility for that work in our Synod has been placed 
upon your President, who is acting as Synodical Missionary Super- 
intendent, along with his general work as President of Synod. 
We are glad to do this extra work, however, in so far as we have 
time and are able, because it saves the Synod the expense of an 
additional man for this position. And the arrangement has the 
advantage of the closer unification of our mission causes with the 
other part of our synodical program. In closing, we want to 
thank the brethren for their uniform courtesies and cooperations 
which have been shown by them in the many and varied duties 
which we have had to perform. The work has not been light, in 
fact it grows heavier year by year, but with your help and by 
the assurance of God's abiding presence and support, it has been 
pleasant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. MORGAN, President. 

Report of Committee on President's Report 

Your committee has carefully examined our President's report. 
It is a carefully prepared and splendid document. All matters 
have been given due consideration in a most efficient manner. We 
hereby desire to express the appreciation of Synod for the consci- 
entious and thorough manner in which Dr. Morgan has met every 
emergency and administered the affairs of this body. 

No special recommendations are found in the report. We wish 
to summarize the following items: 

1. — We note the steady and substantial progress in every depart- 
partment of the Synod's work. 

2. — That the Lord has preserved the lives of all our ministerial 
brethren, and that those suffering from sickness have regained 
health in the main. We note with gratitude that the Lord 
has spared the lives of our two senior members, and that the 
presence of one favors us today with his helpful counsel. 

3. — The report shows that during the year twelve resignations be- 
came effective; seven dismissals to other Synods. However, 



28 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

three of these had accepted work in other Synods before last 
year's convention, and one had not been engaged in regular 
pastoral work for several years, so our actual loss this year 
to other Synods is only three. 

During the year eleven men accepted calls and four appli- 
cations for membership were received. 

Fifteen men were installed during 1927, and thirteen 
churches received supply services. The report . shows eight 
parishes vacant or will be in the near future. 
4. — One of the most encouraging features of the report is the 
large number of cornerstones laid for new churches, dedi- 
cations, opening of new churches and general improvements. 

Cornerstones for seven new churches and for the new Dor- 
mitory and Administration Buildings at Lenoir-Rhyne College 
were laid. 

Five new churches were dedicated and two formally opened 
for worship. 

Under the heading "Other Improvements" we note that 
eleven churches have undergone extensive building operations 
and repairs. 

Summarizing this feature of the report, taking into consid- 
eration proposed new churches, those dedicated and others 
that have made extensive improvements, we find an outlay 
in church property to the value of over $674,800. 
5. — In reference to the campaign to raise the $4,000,000 Pension 
Fund, we would suggest, if there should be any congregations 
that have not had a part in this worth-while undertaking, that 
such pastors and laymen urge their people to make an invest- 
ment that will help assure our Synod to meet the full quota. 
6. — We would emphasize again the suggestion made by our Pres- 
ident, calling attention to our pastors, to constantly keep be- 
fore our people the objectives of our Synod and the United 
Lutheran Church. 
7. — We note with thankful hearts that the lives of our ministerial 
brethren have been spared during the past year, and unite with 
our president in extending sympathy to churches and families 
who have been bereft of leading lay workers. 
8. — We offer congratulations to our Synodical Brotherhood in 
their effort to raise a Loan and Gift Fund of $100,000. May 
their efforts be crowned with success and the goal reached 
in the near future. 
9. — Under the head of "Miscellaneous" we would recommend that 
items 1, 2, 3, and 4 be received as information. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 29 



Under item 5, we recommend that delegates be elected at 
this meeting of Synod to the next Bi-ennial convention of the 
United Lutheran Church in America and the United Synod 
of the South to be held at Erie, Pa. 

Under item 6, we recommend that the action of the Mace- 
donia congregation receive the approval of Synod. 
Respectfully submitted, 

GEO. H. RHODES, 
V. Y. BOOZER, 
JAS. D. KINARD, 
L. VIRGIL SCHENCK. 

The Report of the Committee on President's Report was received 
for consideration by item. 

Items 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 were adopted in turn. 
The Report was adopted as a whole.

Respectfully submitted, 

JAMES D. HEILIG, Treas. 
Jan. 4th, 1928. 

Auditors Report 

February 22, 1928. 

In the beginning, I beg to advise the Convention that it has 
fallen my lot to examine the books of Treasurer James D. Heilig 
alone, since Mr. W. F. Lopp is deceased, and Rev. P. J. Bame has 
moved to the Virginia Synod. 

I have gone over the records of Mr. Heilig very carefully, and 
to the best of my knowledge and belief, everything is correct. I 
find that he keeps his books neat, and that it is easy for anyone 
to ascertain the standing of his accounts. 

I further find that quite a number of congregations are behind 
with their apportionment, and that in nearly every case it is 
where they get behind in making their monthly remittances. I 
did not go into the detailed checking of the remittances received 
by the Treasurer, as they did not show on his report; but each 
congregation can very readily compare their records with the rec- 
ord found in the bulletin, and see whether or not they are credited 
with the amount their records show. The Treasurer is not infalli- 
ble, and it may be that there are some clerical errors; but if so, 
he will be glad to make the necessary corrections. 

Allow me to suggest that the pastors urge their congregations 
to meet their apportionment regularly, because it is very neces- 
sary that Mr. Heilig have their remittances promptly, in order 
that he may meet the bills he is expected to pay monthly. 

I feel that the Convention is extremely fortunate in having as 
Treasurer a man with the business ability of our present Treas- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 55 



urer; and that his continued service in this position makes him 
very efficient in handling the financial affairs of the Synod. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. M. MOSER, Chairman. 

The Auditor's Report was received and adopted. 



Secretary's Report 



Four hundred copies of the Bulletin and four thousand copies 
of the Minutes of the One Hundred and Twenty-third Convention 
of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina were 
printed and distributed. Because of his failure to print and dis- 
tribute the same according to contract, the printer reduced his bill 
from $932.50 to $750.00, which was accepted. 

The contract for printing the Bulletin and Minutes of this con- 
vention was given to the Farrell Printing Co. of Columbia, S. C. 

I hereby present a certified copy of the Minutes of the One 
Hundred and Twenty-Third Convention of the United Evangelical 
Lutheran Synod of North Carolina, and recommend that it be 
placed in the archives of Synod as the Protocol of the Minutes of 
that convention. 

J. C. DIETZ, Secretary. 
i 

The Secretary's Report was received and adopted. 



Report of Statistical Secretary 

The constitution of Synod calls for an annual distribution of 
blank parochial reports so that congregations may report in fig- 
ures their activities. The additional duty of sending out blank 
reports on "State of the Church" has been placed upon the Sta- 
tistical Secretary. 

In the furtherance of the interests of the Church I beg to 
report that all blanks were mailed before the Christmas holidays. 
More reports have been returned than in previous years. The 
pastors are growing in the grace of more promptness — there is 
still room for improvement. At the time of the preparation of 
this report, all congregations had reported except four. 

The information sought by these reports is not obtained because 
those charged with the duty of gathering this information do not 
do it. Much stress is laid upon the" gathering of complete and 
adequate statistics by the United Lutheran Church and also by 



56 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



the Department of the Census of the Federal Government, so our 
pastors should take time in assembling figures and should exer- 
cise care in making up their reports. 

An analysis of the statistics for the year will not be made 
and yet I can not refrain from calling the attention of Synod 
to the "Baptised Membership" in 1926 and to that in 1927. A 
comparison shows that the increase was only 38, while the col- 
umn for "Baptisms" shows that there were 872 children bap- 
tised. This discrepancy can not be explained by losses marked 
"Otherwise" for that number is only 205. The explanation lies 
in the method followed by our pastors in assembling their figures. 

Those who judge our progress, do so by using our published 
statistics; they have no time to make comparisons and draw con- 
clusions. We must do that for them. We need to look carefully 
to the source of the future growth of the Church and guard it 
zealously. Work and patience will build, and hold, and finally 
provide a glorious Church. 

E. H. KOHN. 

The Report of the Statistical Secretary was received and adopted. 



Report of the Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee of the North Carolina Synod held 
four meetings during the past year, June 2, 1927, August 4, 1927, 
October 20, 1927, and January 10, 1928. 

The actions of the committee are herewith submitted for your 
consideration. 

I. The following Resolutions in memory of Hon. L. M. Swink 
were adopted: 

RESOLUTIONS 
The Hon. L. M. Swink 

Whereas; God in His infinite wisdom has called from our midst 
to his eternal reward our esteemed brother and co-worker, the 
Hon. L. M. Swink, and 

Whereas; He was a faithful and efficient member of The Execu- 
tive Committee of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of 
North Carolina; of the Executive Committee of the United Lu- 
theran Church in America; of the Board of Trustees of Collegiate 
Institute and of Lenoir-Rhyne College, giving freely of his time 
and counsel to the needs and problems of his Church in every 
department of work. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 57 



1st. — Therefore be it Resolved, That we humbly bow in submis- 
sion to the will of our Heavenly Father whose mysterious provi- 
dence has removed him from our midst. 

2nd. — That we record our deep appreciation of his Christian fel- 
lowship, his consecrated gifts, and of his untiring devotion to the 
service of his Church and country. 

3rd. — That we extend to his bereaved family our heartfelt sym- 
pathy, and pray that the God of all grace may comfort and sus- 
tain them in their grief and loneliness. 

4th. — That these resolutions be spread on the minutes of the 
Executive Committee, and that copies be sent to The Lutheran 
and The North Carolina Lutheran for publication. 

B. Capps, 
J. F. Crigler, 

Committee. 

II. Upon the recommendation of President J. L. Morgan and 
of the Examining Committee of Synod the following ministers 
were received by letters of transfer and their names placed on 
the Synodical Roll : 

Rev. W. H. Dutton, from the S. C. Synod. 
Rev. L. L. Lohr, D.D., from the S. C. Synod. 
Rev. C. A. Phillips, from the S. C. Synod. 
We ask that Synod approve this action. 

III. The matter of Hopewell Church property was placed in 
the hands of President Morgan and Mr. W. H. Beckerdite to 
handle as they deem wise. 

IV. The following resolutions relating to Educational Institu- 
tions were adopted: 

1. — That the $4,000 annual pledge for Lenoir-Rhyne College be 
apportioned to our congregations for the year 1927, and that 
the pastors and church councils be so notified, and that one- 
half of the aforesaid amount be paid out of the Synodical 
Treasury by the first of July, and that the same be reimbursed 
from receipts from moneys paid by congregations for that pur- 
pose at the earliest possible date. 

2. — That the $1,066.66 required to pay the insurance on the build- 
ings at Mt. Pleasant, Collegiate Institute and Mont Amoena, 
be paid. 

3. — That the officers of Synod prepare and send out a special 
apportionment table, as per order of Synod, to the congrega- 
tions of Synod to raise $4,000 for Lenoir-Rhyne College and 



58 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



$1,066.66 for insurance on the buildings of the institutions at 
Mt. Pleasant, and that the officers of Synod in preparing the 
tables are allowed to separate these items and show each con- 
gregation's part for each of the causes. 
4. — That in view of the fact that the Board of Trustees for Edu- 
cational Institutions at a meeting of the Executive Committee, 
prior to the last meeting of Synod, requested said Executive 
Committee to take care of certain items of insurance upon 
buildings of our institutions, and 

Whereas, The Executive Committee recommended that this 
insurance debt be paid, and 

Whereas, Synod authorized the debt to be paid, and, at the 
same time, requested the Executive Committee to devise ways 
and means to reimburse the Synodical Treasury, and 

Whereas, The Executive Committee has taken such steps, 

Now, therefore, Be it Resolved by the Executive Committee, 
That it is the sense of the Executive Committee that the Board 
of Trustees for Educational Institutions be requested to take 
such steps as will insure the future payment of insurance from 
revenues derived from the institutions. 

V. Missions. 

1. — The Durham mission petitioned the Executive Committee for 
$10,000 toward its new church. The Mission Committee hav- 
ing recommended this petition for sympathetic consideration 
by the Executive, the Durham mission was voted a gift of 
$7,000 from the Treasury of Synod. 

2. — The Asheville mission having requested $5,000 toward the pur- 
chase of a lot, and the Mission Committee having recommended 
favorable consideration of this request, the Executive Com- 
mittee voted this mission a gift of $3,000 from the Synodical 
Treasury. 

3. — The mission at Rocky Mount was voted $1,500 toward the prin- 
cipal on its church debt, and the Treasurer was authorized to 
send check for same subject to the condition of the Treasury: 
this money to be expended as follows: $1,000 to be applied 
on reducing the principal of note owed to the bank, .one-half 
the street paving debt to be paid, and the remainder to be 
used in paying interest on debts. 

4. — It was also voted that these appropriations to the missions at 
Durham, Asheville and Rocky Mount be paid subject to the 
condition of the Treasury, and that they be expended under 
the direction and subject to the approval of the Mission Com- 
mittee. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 59 



VI. Because of the unsatisfactory fulfillment of the conditions 
of the contract for printing the minutes of Synod, the Secretary 
was given full authority to settle with the printer on such com- 
promise basis as he deemed fair. (See Secretary's Report) 

VII. By motion the salary of the Treasurer was increased to 
$500 per year. 

VIII. President J. L. Morgan was authorized to employ a sec- 
retary as needed to relieve him of detail work in his office that he 
may devote his time and strength to the affairs of Synod at large. 

IX. The following Budget for 1928 was adopted:

Report of Necrologist 

Your Necrologist takes great pleasure in reporting that God, in 
His infinite wisdom and love, has so watched over and cared for 
us that death has not invaded our ranks during the past year; 
for which let us praise, adore and glorify Him with our bodies 
and our souls, which are His. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEO. H. COX, Necrologist. 

The Report of the Necrologist was received and adopted. 



Report of Mission Committee 

Your Committee on Missions hereby submits its report for the 
year 1927 as follows: 

A. — Meetings. 

The committee is composed of Rev. A. M. Huffman, Rev. H. P. 
Wyrick, B. B. Miller, Esq., Mr. Avery R. Rhyne, and the Presi- 
dent of Synod who is "ex officio" chairman. Rev, H. P. Wyrick 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 63 



is secretary of tfhe committee. Three meetings were held during 
the year, on April the 5th, September the 23rd, and November 
the 30th. At the first meeting the following matters were at- 
tended to: 

1. — Applications for aid on salaries were received, and appropri- 
ations were agreed upon for the respective missions. In order 
to even up the mission year so as to run concurrently with the 
calendar year, appropriations were made at this time for only 
a part of a year, and hence no schedule of salaries for this 
period is given in this report. 

2. — A call was extended to Rev. E. C. Cooper, Ph.D., to become 
field missionary for the Western District of Synod, which call 
was approved by the Board of American Missions, and Pas- 
tor Cooper has accepted the same and is in charge of the work 
in Belmont and surrounding communities. 

3. — An application from the mission in Durham for aid from 
Synod towards the building of a house of worship was referred 
to the Executive Committee of Synod, to whom it was ad- 
dressed, for sympathetic consideration. 

4. — An application from the mission in Asheville for help from 
Synod towards the purchase of a lot for a church, as soon 
as a suitable lot can be secured, was likewise referred to the 
Executive Committee of Synod for favorable consideration. 

At the second meeting, special consideration was given to a re- 
quest from Dr. F. F. Fry, Executive Secretary of the Board of 
American Missions, for a careful survey of all mission congre- 
gations of the Synod, covering their activities from the date of 
organization up to the present time. Also, request was made for 
a survey of points where we have prospects for establishing mis- 
sions within the near future. The chairman of the committee 
was designated as the one to make this survey, which has been 
done and report has been made to the Board as per request. We 
desire to state here that the mission pastors were uniformly oblig- 
ing and helpful in making up this survey as far as it was possible 
for them to get at the information called for. But, it was sur- 
prising and disappointing to note how imperfectly the records 
have been kept in some of our mission congregations. Your com- 
mittee would urge that hereafter more careful attention be given 
to church records, and that the old record books be carefully pre- 
served, or turned over to the Archivist of Synod for safe keeping. 
In this survey, it was noted that a number of our mission congre- 
gations have been on the mission list, in one way or another, for 
many years, without having made much gain in either numerical 
strength or financial ability to become self-sustaining. Some of 



64 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



such congregations are serving an indispensable mission in com- 
munities where otherwise our people would be left without the 
spiritual care of the Church of their love and faith; but there 
are other instances where it would seem to your committee that we 
should either make special efforts to build up the congregations, 
or else endeavor to merge them into some other Lutheran church 
within their reach. There is a crying need for our Synod to take 
up new points where missions ought to be established, but only 
slow progress can be made in that direction unless more of -the 
congregations we are now aiding can manage to come off of the 
mission list and become self-sustaining more rapidly than they 
have hitherto been doing. To those who have made a careful 
study of the conditions in North Carolina, it must be evident, how- 
ever, that mission work in our Synod calls for prayer, persever- 
ance and patience. A careful survey will show that, except in 
cities where the Lutheran Church has long been established, we 
do not find people of the Lutheran faith in sufficient numbers 
to enable us to start new congregations which would be able to 
support themselves or to build houses of worship, without consid- 
erable and continued help for many years from the Mission Board. 
And yet, if our Synod is to continue to grow by increasing the 
number of her congregations, we must not allow these conditions 
to discourage us, but we must rather do our full strength in 
planting and watering, with full assurance that God will give us 
the increase. For this purpose, we need, as never before, a full 
and clear vision of our God-given mission as an evangelization 
force here in this State of ours. We need to set new standards 
of giving for the support of missions by those congregations which 
already have become self-sustaining. In making the survey for 
new work, an encouraging outlook for a new church in Charlotte 
was brought to our attention, to which encouragement was given 
by your committee, and we take pleasure in noting here that a 
promising congregation has since been organized in a growing 
section of that city, not as a mission congregation, however, but 
a self-sustaining church, which is all the more gratifying. Let 
us hope that other communities in cities where we have old and 
well established churches may catch a vision from this example 
and start new work where we have room and need for it. This 
would help to offset the necessarily slow growth which we must 
encounter in places where our Church is just beginning to work. 
At the third meeting, the chief matters which engaged the at- 
tention of the committee were: 

l.-^The making out of the budget for 1928, in which we had the 
assistance of Rev. A. D. R. Hancher, D.D., Superintendent of 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 65 



Missions. A schedule of appropriations on salaries for the 
different mission pastorates will be found in division C in this 
report. 

2. — A request from the mission in Rocky Mount for further finan- 
cial assistance from Synod in helping to pay off the indebted- 
ness of their church. The matter was referred to the Execu- 
tive Committee of Synod for favorable consideration. 

3. — It was the expressed hope of the committee that by another 
year, several of our missions should be in position to assume 
a much larger share of the salary, than has been possible in 
the past. 

In addition to the work done in the regular meetings, your com- 
mittee has tried to keep in close touch with our missionaries and 
their work, through correspondence, by special committee efforts, 
by repeated visits by the chairman of the committee, and by not- 
ing quarterly reports which all missionaries are required to send 
to Superintendent Hancher and to the chairman of your committee. 
We are pleased to report that our missionaries have been faithful 
in their work, and that the missions as a whole have made com- 
mendable progress, and especially so when we consider the handi- 
cap under which some of the pastors and congregations have 
had to labor. 

B. — General Survey. 

Andrews: — This mission has made fine progress this year. A 
new church has been built and is now ready to be dedicated, and 
the congregation has enjoyed satisfactory growth in membership 
also. The church is of brick, provided with basement for Sunday 
School and other activities of the congregation, steam-heated, 
lighted with electricity, and will be fitted out with modern furni- 
ture according to Lutheran arrangement. The lot was donated 
by Mrs. F. P. Cover, who also contributed quite liberally towards 
the building of the church and its furnishings. Other individuals 
gave pieces of furniture, but we do not have a list of same, and 
so can not enumerate them here now. The congregation as a 
whole showed marked interest in the work and did all it could 
to make possible the building of the church. It should be noted 
that the Women's Missionary Society of the Synod made liberal 
contributions towards the building of the church, without which 
it could not well have been done. The value of the entire prop- 
erty, when finally completed, will be around $20,000.00, and will 
be free of debt, except possibly for some deferred payments on 
pews. In addition to the work done in the town of Andrews, a mis- 
sion Sunday School is carried on in the countryside about four 



66 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



miles from town, where splendid work is being done. Rev. W. H. 
Lefstead is pastor in Andrews, and Miss Nellie Park is parish 
helper and general director of children's work. 

Asheville: — This mission is greatly in need of church property 
of its own in order to hold the best interests of its own member- 
ship and to make it more attractive for others who might come 
with them. Rev. E. R. Lineberger, the pastor, is faithful and 
devoted to the work, but he cannot make the headway that other- 
wise would be possible, until property is secured. A church lot 
should be secured as soon as practicable, and to this end it is 
hoped that the Synod will do all she reasonably can to help pay 
for it. 

Bessemer: — Rev. N. D. Yount is pastor of this mission. The 
church in Bessemer has filled in and beautified its lot at a cost 
of about eighty dollars, and made it much more attractive. Dur- 
ing the past year this congregation's chief attention was given to 
its general work and the remaining indebtedness on the parson- 
age. The Shelby congregation is still having to hold services in 
a public school building, which is neither suitable nor inspiring. 
The congregation has a good lot, but it needs a house of worship 
also. We hope that some provision can be made soon by which 
this can be done. 

Burke: — This mission has been without a regular pastor this 
year, but supply services have been secured most of the time for 
the church at Hildebran, by men from Lenoir-Rhyne College. A 
call has been extended to one of the students in the Southern 
Seminary to become regular pastor when through school next 
Spring, which it is hoped will be accepted. The outlook for this 
congregation is quite promising. Efforts have been made to inter- 
est the members at Morganton in an arrangement for services, 
but so far without satisfactory results. 

Charlotte: — This congregation was without a regular pastor for 
a good part of the year, but it was supplied during the summer 
by Student J. F. Davis until school opened this fall. Since that 
time, Rev. W. A. Lutz, the man who was pastor when the church 
was built, preached for them up until the end of the year. Rev. 
John L. Morgan was called and took charge January the first, 
and the congregation is quite hopeful for good developments under 
his leadership. They still owe a considerable sum on their par- 
sonage, but are paying it off through building and loan arrange- 
ments. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 67 



Durham: — This mission hopes to start work on its house of 
worship this year. Only the Sunday School part will be under- 
taken at this time, which will serve to provide for the preaching 
services as well as for the school and other needs of the congre- 
gation, until they are able to put up the main building. The 
State Luther League has pledged $2,000.00 towards this church 
for the ensuing year, and a number of small amounts have been 
received from various friends of the mission, but more and larger 
amounts are still needed before the congregation will be prepared 
to go ahead with its work. Rev. J. L. Thornburg has gathered 
in a splendid congregation for this field, but they need the help 
of the Synod in order to get a suitable house of worship. 

Pastor Thornburg makes visits from time to time to the State 
University, and holds services here one Sunday per month, where 
we have near on to a hundred Lutherans at this time. Visits have 
been made by representatives of your committee to this place, 
and it has been stated time and again that we need some sort of 
church property here, where we could bring our Lutheran people 
with their friends together for worship, and where they might 
come together for other occasions, and we desire to reaffirm these 
opinions and to say that the need seems to be greater each year, 
by reason of the increasing number of Lutheran boys and girls 
who are going there to school. But, little good can be accom- 
plished by any resolutions which might be passed, or visits which 
might be made there by your committee, without provision for 
funds to take care of the purchase of property. 

Forsyth :■ — This mission is taking on new life since Rev. W. J. 
Moretz has taken hold of the work as pastor, and is giving prom- 
ise of encouraging developments. The Eastern Conference held 
two meetings in that pastorate in 1927, which afforded inspiration 
and encouragement for those churches. There is a good field for 
our services in that territory, and by earnest efforts we believe 
that large gains will be made soon. 

Good Hope: — The Good Hope congregation is working steadily 
in an effort to pay off the debt for their new Sunday School build- 
ing, and, under the faithful leadership of Rev. C. K. Wise, new 
members are being added to the congregation. Pastor Wise is 
in charge of the work at Brookford also, where we have a congre- 
gation, but no house of worship. Services are held in an impro- 
vised hall. A church is needed for this mission. 

Granite Falls: — The work in this pastorate is in a healthy con- 
dition, and is being improved each year by Rev. P. C. Sigmon, the 
pastor, by week-day training schools and by otherwise educating 



Proceedings of United Evangelical 



the people up to a clearer conception of their Christian duties and 
responsibilities. Philadelphia congregation has made improve- 
ments amounting to upwards of $400 during the year and is in 
splendid repair. There is a likelihood of a new church being built 
at Hudson within the near future. 

Hendersonville: — The work in Hendersonville is gradually grow- 
ing. The membership reported for this year is considerably larger 
than was reported last year. However, this field is to one side 
of the regular Lutheran territory, and hence the growth will of 
necessity not be as rapid as it otherwise would be. The congre- 
gation still owes several thousand dollars for furnishings of dif- 
ferent kinds for the church, and likewise a balance is still due 
on the church lot. If these debts could be paid off, it would make 
it easier for the congregation to carry on its work. This mission 
was developed by Rev. J. D. Mauney, who is still pastor there. 

Lebanon: — The work here is developing encouragingly. Rev. 
E. F. Troutman, the pastor, has been educating the people up to 
see the joy of real church activity and support, as they had not 
experienced it for a long time prior to this. The Lebanon congre- 
gation in particular has shown commendable progress. It has 
undertaken to assume $150.00 more of the salary of the pastor, 
so as to relieve the Mission Board of that much for use else- 
where, beginning with this year. Special week day training schools 
were held with good effect. 

Lenoir: — The church in Lenoir has had splendid growth during 
the past year, both in membership and in liberality. Improve- 
ments have been made on their property which amounted to around 
$2,000.00, which puts their church in splendid repair. There is 
a bright outlook for this work. However, their pastor, Rev. P. D. 
Risinger, has accepted a call to another pastorate and will leave 
here about the last of February. 

Monroe: — This mission has been without a regular pastor all 
the year, but the congregation has carried on Sunday School, and 
for the most of the time, when no pastor could be had, lay ser- 
vices were conducted, much to the credit of the congregation. 
Student J. D. Sheppard supplied them during the summer, and 
students from the Seminary have been preaching for them regu- 
larly since school opened. Rev. W. A. Lutz has been supplying 
for Morning Star congregation. A call has been extended to 
one of our young men, and it is the hope of the congregation that 
he will accept it. With a good man here, this field would soon 
show splendid development. 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 69 



Raleigh: — Holy Trinity congregation finished paying for its pipe 
organ during the past year, and also did considerable repair work 
on its church property, all at an outlay of around $2,000.00. Pas- 
tor E. R. McCauley, D.D., is very much encouraged over the de- 
velopments of the congregation, both numerically and otherwise. 
The congregation still owes a considerable amount on its parson- 
age, though it is carrying that balance through building and loan 
arrangements, and will find no difficulty in meeting the obligations 
as they come due. It is the hope of the church to become self- 
sustaining within another year or so. 

Randolph: — This mission has been without a regular pastor dur- 
ing the past year. Student F. P. Cauble supplied them during 
the summer months, and different students have been holding ser- 
vices for them since school opened. A call has been extended 
to one of our Seminary students, and it is hoped that he will see 
his way clear to accept the call and take charge of the work when 
through school. With a good pastor in charge of this work, the 
congregations would soon grow, and the returns for consecrated 
services would be truly gratifying. 

Thomasville: — The congregation at Thomasville has made fine 
progress within the past year, in both membership and in finances. 
It finished paying off the debt for the church, and also raised funds 
and paid for finishing up the basement of the church for Sunday 
School usage, all of which amounted to around $3,000.00. The 
church was dedicated free of debt on November the 27th. The 
entire wood work of the church had been repainted and redecor- 
ated. Rev. G. O. Ritchie is pastor of this church. 

Watauga, Mt. Pleasant: — This work is developing as well as 
could be hoped for, under the disadvantages which must be taken 
into consideration in this field. Rev. W. A. Deaton, D.D., the pas- 
tor, has been faithful and punctual in holding regular services 
for the congregations, and in looking after their spiritual neces- 
sities. The work in this field hitherto has been difficult because 
of bad roads, and hence a difficulty in getting to the churches and 
in visiting the members in their homes. A state highway is being 
constructed near two of the churches, which will improve conditions 
in that respect, but it will not remove the difficulties of travel in 
other places. Often the pastor has to walk through mud or pos- 
sibly snow and rain in order to meet his Sunday appointments, 
because under such conditions a car can not go. But the work 
is ours, and has been for three-quarters of a century, and we owe 
it to ourselves and to our Lutheran people in the mission to do 
what we can to help them. 



70 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Watauga, Boone: — The work of this mission has been carried 
on regularly during the year by Pastor J. A. Yount, with the as- 
sistance of the parish helper, Miss Cora Pearl Jeffcoat, and the 
responses have been reasonably satisfactory. This too is a diffi- 
cult field to get over and ofttimes the roads are such that a car 
can not get over them, which makes it necessary for the pastor 
and the parish helper to walk to their appointments. A new lot 
for the church in Boone has been purchased, and plans have been 
in the making for a house of worship there, which it is hoped 
will be built during the ensuing year. A lot for a church at Fos- 
coe for the Holy Communion congregation has been promised by 
a friend living there. This would place the church out on the 
railroad, instead of being up on a mountain as it now is where 
it is hard to get to it. A new church is needed for this congrega- 
tion anyway, and the membership is willing to move to the new 
location, if the arrangement is consummated. A heating plant 
and a lighting system were installed in St. Mark's Church during 
the past year, and the work there has been making splendid 
progress. 

Eastern Field: — Rev. C. R. Ritchie is in charge of the work in 
Rocky Mount, and the work seems to be developing as well as could 
be expected. This field is entirely away from other Lutheran 
communities, and hence the growth from among our own people 
will not be large for some time to come. It is hoped, however, 
that people who are not members of any church can be interested 
in this work and brought into the congregation from time to time. 
There remains a considerable debt on the congregation for its 
church property, which will have to be paid off in some way before 
we can hope for much permanent success in this work. 

Western Field: — As stated above, Rev. E. C. Cooper, Ph.D., 
has been called to this field, and he is doing aggressive work in 
an effort to line up our own people living in the territory, and 
also to interest those who have no church affiliations elsewhere. 
His work is centered in and around Belmont, but there is hardly 
any limit to the field to be covered here. We should not wonder 
if Dr. Cooper's efforts give us a new demonstration of our possi- 
bilities in communities of this kind, of which there are so many 
in our State.

Report of Committee on Brotherhoods 

We, your Committee on Brotherhoods, having watched the de- 
velopment of the state organization during the past year, wish to 
report that the Brotherhoods are on the increase, and the activi- 
ties of the men in most of the congregations are commendable. 

Approximately a dozen new congregational Brotherhoods have 
been organized. A number of those that had already been organ- 
ized have affiliated with the State and National Organizations. 

During the past year, two new District Brotherhoods have been 
organized, viz: the Northern and the Western. This gives the 
Synod four Districts: Northern, Eastern, Southern, and Western. 

It has not been possible to complete the Loan and Gift Fund 
before this meeting of Synod due to the conflict of the Pension 
Fund Campaign. Indications are, however, that this fund will be 
put into operation by early summer, as only a comparatively few 
subscriptions are yet needed, and congregational Brotherhoods are 
being asked to subscribe for a part of these. 

More of our laymen have engaged in the Pension Fund Cam- 
paign than have ever taken part in any single campaign in our 
Church. A broader vision of the work of the Church is being 
developed in the men which is beginning to bear fruit. 

We commend the Officers and Leaders of the State Brotherhood 
for their efficient work during the past year.

The Report of the Committee on Brotherhoods was received for 
consideration. 

Mr. W. L. Kinney, Vice-President of the State Brotherhood, 
spoke of the work of the organization and its plans for the future. 

The report was adopted. 

A motion was passed by Synod assuring the Brotherhood of its 
interest in their work, and that our pulpits and churches are al- 
ways open to them for the presentation of their objectives to 
our people. 



Report of Committee on Ministerial Education 

Your Committee on Ministerial Education held a meeting on

deaconess, and Miss Emma Lee Cathey is preparing to be a for- 
eign missionary. Applications were received for aid for young 
ladies who are offering themselves for home mission work, but 
for as much as the Synod has not instructed that aid be granted

Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 75 



There are other young people who have finished college who 
expect to enter church work later, but who are not prepared to 
enter upon their chosen professions just at this time. The outlook 
for more men for the ministry is encouraging, and we hope that 
within a few years the problem for pastors to fill vacancies will 
have been solved. But along with our efforts to secure adequate 
numbers for the profession, let us also endeavor to impress it 
upon the minds and hearts of our young men that our Synod 
is looking for them to help take care of some of the smaller outly- 
ing parishes, where real service is needed so badly. 

Respectfully submitted for the committee, 

J. L. MORGAN, Chairman. 

The Report of Committee on Ministerial Education was adopted. 



Report oi Archivist 



For more than a year the Archives of Synod have been with- 
out a permanent home. However, temporary quarters have been 
secured so that nothing has suffered any serious damage. During 
the past year most of the material has been stored in the base- 
ment vault of the First National Bank, Hickory, N. C. Some 
of the most valuable material has been deposited in a safe deposit 
box in the Consolidated Trust Co., Hickory, N. C. In this box 
were placed the bound volumes of the minutes of the N. C. Synod, 
the minutes of the Tennessee Synod, the College catalogues, the 
History of the N. C. Synod by Cox and Bernheim, and a number 
of other historical documents concerning the Tennessee Synod. 

All the material has been catalogued and recorded in a card in- 
dex file according to the following classification: 



I.

An examination of the Archives reveals the following facts con- 
cerning the nature of the material: 

1. — The Synod has a wide range of historical matter in its pos- 
session. 

2. — A great many necessary records for a complete history of the 
Synod are still missing. 



76 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

These two facts are demonstrated in the following exhibit: 

A. — A complete file of the minutes of the North Carolina Synod 
in bound volumes from 1803 to 1920, with extra bound volumes from 
1836 to 1909. Also a number of single minutes. 

B. — A complete file of the College catalogues (Now Lenoir- 
Rhyne) from 1882 to 1927 except for the year 1917-18. 

C. — A file of catalogues of North Carolina College from 1860 
to 1900-01, with ten years missing. 

D. — A file of minutes of the Tennessee Synod for only 32 years 
of its 100 years of history. 

E. — A collection of minutes from 17 Synods and General Bodies 
of the Lutheran Church outside our own Synod. This collection 
came from so many sources that space will not allow mention of 
all. The chief ones are as follows: 

Virginia Synod for 27 years, between 1883 and 1914. 

South West Virginia Synod for 18 years, between 1855 and 

1908. 
Ministerium of Pa. for 20 years, between 1832 and 1892. 
West Pa. Synod for 5 years, between 1837 and 1843. 
Mississippi Synod for 2 years, 1855 (1st meeting) and 1907. 
United Synod South for 15 years, between 1886 (1st meeting) 

and 1918. 
South Carolina Synod for 23 years, between 1867 and 1912. 
General Council for 19 years, between 1867 (1st meeting) 

and 1907. 
General Synod for 17 years, between 1825 and 1911. 
General Synod South for 3 years, 1866, 1868, 1882. 
We have only two Minutes of the United Lutheran Church, 

1918 and 1920. 
We have no minutes of the Synodical Brotherhood and none 
of the Luther League except for the year 1925 and 1926. 

F. — We have some very valuable material concerning congre- 
gations and pastors which dates back 100 years or more. 

G. — A general collection of periodicals including The Lutheran, 
The Lutheran Church Visitor, The American Lutheran Survey, 
The North Carolina Lutheran, The Messenger, The Educator and 
Tidings. 

H. — A very full collection of Minutes of the Women's Mission- 
ary Society (both the N. C. and the Tenn. Synod organizations), 
with bound volumes for the N. C. Synod organization from 1886 
to 1914, and for the Tennessee Synod organization from 1913 
to 1921. 

The Synod is indebted to Dr. L. L. Lohr for his contribution 
of the following historical documents during the past year: 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 77 



"David Henkel — His Life and Labor" 

"A Historic Old School House" 

"The Germans in North Carolina West of the Catawba" 

"One Hundred Years of Trinity" 

"St. Mark's" 

I am glad to report that a vault has been built in the new Ad- 
ministration Building at Lenoir-Rhyne College which will be used 
for the Synodical Archives. As soon as the building is entirely 
complete the material will be placed in this new vault. In these 
new quarters we will have sufficient space to properly arrange 
and display all the material. All new matter for the Archives 
should first come into the hands of the Archivist for classification 
and record, and then put in its proper place in the vault. 

Financial Report 

During the year the Archivist has found it necessary to disburse 
the following amounts : 

For Cabinet File with Cards $3.40 

Rental Safe Deposit Box 9.00 

Total $12.40 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. N. YOUNT, Archivist. 

The Report of the Archivist was received and adopted. 
The Treasurer of Synod was authorized to defray the expenses 
of the Archivist as itemized in this report. 



Report of the Committee on Women's Work 

The Committee had a representative at one meeting of the 
Executive Committee of the Women's Missionary Society. One 
member attended the entire session of the Annual Convention held 
at Wilmington. Their work has been noted with interest from 
various points of observation. We give the following items and 
commend them to the attention of Synod: 

1. — The loyalty and devotion of the Synodical Missionary Society 
to the Church, to the Synod, and also to their organization; 

2. — Their interest and zeal in the spread of the Gospel at home 
and abroad; 



78 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



3. — Their activity in publishing and spreading information con- 
cerning the work, which is being done by their interest in 
The Lutheran, The Lutheran Woman's Work, The North Car- 
olina Lutheran and other publications of the Church. 

4. — Along with their special services for the year there are special 
offerings in addition to their regular dues, Thank Offering, 
Lenten Self Denial, July Home Mission offering and Christ- 
mas offering. Life Membership and In Memoriam fund is 
also devoted to the general work. 

5. — There were 111 Women's Societies at the last Convention with 
a membership of 2,956 and 108 Light Brigades with a mem- 
bership of 3,368. 

6. — The report of the Treasurer at the last Convention shows the 
following: 

Amount raised by Women's Societies $14,263 

Amount raised by the Light Brigade 3,079 

Total amount for the year $17,342 

7. — They finished payment of their pledge of $8,000 to St. An- 
drew's, Andrews, and have selected St. Mark's, Asheville, as 
the next point in North Carolina on which to concentrate. 
8. — The Synod expresses its gratification and approval of the ex- 
cellent work done by the Women's Missionary Society and as- 
sures them of its hearty support and prayers. 
Respectfully submitted, 

REV. E. F. K. ROOF, 
REV. C. A. BROWN. 

The Report of the Committee on Women's Work was received 
for consideration. 

Mrs. E. F. K. Roof, Secretary of the Synodical Missionary So- 
ciety brought the greetings of that body, and spoke interestingly 
of its accomplishments in the past and its aims for the future. 

The report was adopted. 



Report of Committee on Young Peoples Work 

Your Committee on Young People's work submit the following: 
The Chairman attended three meetings of the Executive Com- 
mittee during the year. We also attended a part of the convention 
of the National Luther League at Salisbury, and was present at 
the State Convention at Albemarle in August, 1927. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 79 



The following is noted with reference to the work of the League 
for the past year. A genuine interest in the National League 
Convention by the State League, as manifested by the attendance 
at the convention by the leagues from all over the state, and the 
hospitality shown the visitors and delegates from all parts of our 
Church in this country. 

The program for the National convention was wisely planned, 
of a high order, and well executed. We cannot but feel that the 
impressions gained from the National Convention will be of un- 
told value, not only to our Luther Leaguers, but also a wonder- 
ful stimulant to our pastors, and every one who had the privilege 
of attending the convention. 

The following is also of interest. 

There are now 120 Leagues in the State, 5 more than last year, 
with an enrollment of 2,566 members. 

Receipts from all sources for the year were $5,350. Disburse- 
ments were $4,893.75. 

Almost 50% of the leagues that made pledges paid more than 
pledged. Only 25% paid less than was pledged. 

Mr. Samuel Sox, a seminary student, was the efficient field sec- 
retary last year. His report shows that he visited 105. The con- 
tact which the field secretary makes with the local leagues, and the 
encouragement and advice given, serves to increase the interest 
and efficiency of all leagues visited. 

Interest in Mission Study continues. 

The Life Service Program which is put on each year by the 
different leagues, serves to keep before the young people the idea 
of definite Christian service, and also helps to acquaint them with 
special fields of service. 

The program for new work toward which the league is directing 
its attention this year is as follows: 

St. Paul's, Durham $2,000.00 

Southern Lutheran Seminary 500.00 

South America 400.00 

Lowman Home, White Rock, S. C 250.00 

Boy's Work 125.00 

Current expenses 500.00 

Field Secretary 400.00 

National dues 600.00 

Summer School 25.00 

Total $4,800.00 



80 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



In making this brief survey of the activities of the North Caro- 
lina Luther League, it is gratifying to observe the interest mani- 
fested and the sincerity that is displayed by the young people of 
our Church, in the work of the Lord. Hundreds of them are 
planning for the "Life Worth While", realizing that this life is 
the Christ-filled life, and one that is "Lost in service" to God 
through Christian service to humanity. 

We deeply appreciate the active interest which the Luther 
League has in our Church and the financial aid, much of which is 
made through real sacrifice, that is given for missionary and 
other enterprises of our Church. 

We are confident that, with the proper encouragement from the 
Church at large, we shall have in the years to come, a greater 
and more effective working force for God, in the pulpit and pew, 
by reason of the work of the Luther League which is "Of the 
Church, for the Church and by the Church". 
Respectfully submitted, 

W. G. COBB, Chairman. 

The Report of the Committee on Young People's Work was re- 
ceived, and after discussion, was adopted. 

Tuesday, February 21, 1928, 7:30 P.M. 

Vespers were conducted by Rev. J. L. Yost.

ican Missions; Mr. Arthur P. Black, Executive Secretary of the 
Laymen's Movement, presented the aims and objectives of the 
men of the Church; Rev. L. B. Wolf, D.D., spoke of the work 
and problems of the Board of Foreign Missions of the United 
Lutheran Church.

The roll was called. 
The minutes were read, corrected and approved. 



Report o{ Committee on Summer School for Church 

Workers 

From year to year our reports show the numerical size and out- 
reach of the Summer School for Church Workers. But there is 
no way to tabulate the real value of the School. How it has 
■moved towards greater efficiency, inspired to a greater consistency, 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 81 



enthused in the face of overwhelming difficulties, begotten a new 
zeal, inspired towards a more perfect ideal, how shall we com- 
pute? Your Committee acknowledges the support rendered by 
the officials of Synod, of the several auxiliary organizations and 
so large a number of the Sunday Schools. Regrets are felt and 
disappointments registered for the lack of response from so large 
a number of the congregations of Synod, 52% of the congregations 
represented by one or more persons. Your committee has no 
remedy to offer. The only apology that it has is that the best 
possible faculty was secured and the best possible, and the most 
varied courses offered for the development of church leadership 
within the power of the committee. 

The registration was as follows: The total registration, not 
including the faculty, was 331. There were 82 congregations rep- 
resented, with 40 pastors attending. 13 visitors from outside of 
the State registered. Certificates of credit were given to 65. Nine 
congregations had ten or more representatives. The largest num- 
ber registering for any department was that in music with 215. 
Those following in order were: Bible study 160, Church School 
lecture 139, Luther League 135. In the Sunday School proper 
and other organizations the number enrolled was: Primary de- 
partment 102, Junior 37, Intermediate 25, Senior 24, Adults 24, 
Leaders of Teacher Training 40, Light Brigade 38, Women's So- 
cieties 69. 

Your committee desires to register its gratitude for the efficient 
leadership of those selected for the faculty both from our own 
Synod and those from other states. 

Your committee recommends that Synod provide a way for the 
continuance of the School for another year. 

The report of the Treasurer is attached and is a part of this 
report.

Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 83 



The Report of the Committee on Summer School was received 
and adopted. 

By motion duly passed, the Synod asks all Sunday Schools to 
contribute 3 cents per scholar to defray expenses of the next 
Summer School for Church Workers. 



Report of Committee on Boys' Work 

We, your Committee on Boy's Work, beg to submit the follow- 
ing report: In view of the action of the Richmond Convention 
relative to Work among Boys; and in recognition of the action 
of the State Luther League in Convention at Albemarle, your 
committee felt that nothing should be done with the recommen- 
dations of the Committee on Boy's Work at the last meeting of 
Synod, but we do offer the following recommendation: 

That Synod approve this action of the Luther League, and that 
a representative from Synod be named to work with the Luther 
League Committee on Boy's Work. 

REV. J. LEWIS THORNBURG, Chm., 
MR. HERMAN PAYNE, 
REV. C. E. RIDENHOUR, 
MR. L. E. FISHER, 
REV. R. M. CARPENTER. 

The Report of the Committee on Boy's Work was received and 
adopted. 



Report of Committee on State of the Church 

The report on the State of the Church treats of the condition 
in the Church under eight heads and in ninety-three questions. 
The divisions are: 

Public Worship Church Activities 

Festival Seasons Church Finances 

Lutheran Practices Church Records 

Sunday School Miscellaneous 

There has been a generous response by the pastors and church 
councils in returning reports and giving information. Each con- 
gregation's report cannot be treated separately, only a summary, 
based upon all reports, can be given. 



84 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Taking up the divisions in order, the reports show that at- 
tendance upon worship is not growing but is stationary. All con- 
gregations have preaching weekly or bi-weekly and the attendance 
is good. The proportion of confirmed women over the confirmed 
men is not so large as the work of the women would indicate. A 
large number of the town and city congregations report that there 
is a difficulty in holding their young people — they drift. This 
puts the church at a disadvantage and raises a serious question 
in the life and work of the church. Various solutions are offered 
by those who have the difficulty, yet the solution does not solve 
for the drifting goes on. Family worship died long ago, only one 
congregation reports its families as having family worship. 

The Common Service is used by all the congregations in the 
conduct of public worship, and where it is not used the lack of 
an organist or cantor is the reason given for the omission. 

All the congregations report the observance of the major festi- 
val seasons. Some report the observance of all the seasons, while 
special stress is laid upon the observance of Lent and Easter by 
all. The object stated is the revival of the congregation and to 
win, reclaim, and save. 

In carrying out the practises of the Church it is found that at 
least three and often four communions are held each year. Christ- 
mas and Easter are used for the observance of communion. The 
Church has fallen upon evil days and bad practises because of 
the omitting of the preparatory service apart from the public 
confession and absolution. With few exceptions no separate pre- 
paratory services are held. The reception of non-Lutherans into 
the Church is generally preceded by some instruction in the doc- 
trine and cultus of the Church, reception being followed by letters 
of dismissal, by vote of church council, or by confirmation. All 
plan courses in catechization, extending over a term of years. 

Throughout the Sunday Schools, Lutheran literature is used as 
are the Graded Series and the Augsburg. Organized Bible classes 
in some instances form the Brotherhood. In the rural congrega- 
tions a large proportion of the Sunday School remains for wor- 
ship. Such is not the case in the town and city congregations. 
The Sunday Schools are officered and taught by those who com- 
pose the church council — a most commendable thing. 

There are found no Young People's Societies within the Church 
which are entirely social in character. All do church work in 
some form or other. As to the Brotherhood being a successful 
organization, opinion is divided. The preponderance of the opin- 
ion is on the side of the Brotherhood. 

The budget system and every member canvass are used to get 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 85 



definite subscriptions, then to gather these amounts the Duplex 
Envelope System is used. This year canvasses throughout the 
Church were conducted with fine results. For current expenses 
contributions run high, in some instances every member contrib- 
uting. For Benevolence, this average does not hold good. Some 
congregations have two treasurers. The list of congregations not 
making monthly remittances to the Synodical Treasurer is not 
large. Remittances should be made monthly, even though the 
amount to be reported is small. 

Salaries vary, the least is $600.00 a year and the largest is 
$4000.00. Five congregations pay $3000.00; one $3500.00; five 
$2400.00; two $2700.00; six $2000.00. The average salary for 65 
congregations reporting is $1900.00, with the use of the parson- 
age where there is one. Only one congregation furnishes its pas- 
tor with an automobile, a few pay for the telephone, none for the 
office supplies. Repairs to the church are made as needed. 

All records of congregations are kept in good order, but not in 
safety boxes or vaults. They do not cover adequately the history 
of the congregations. Insurance on property is carried and in 
such amounts as seem to cover the risk. The general condition 
is good. 

To the question, "Is your work becoming more or less difficult?" 
there is a divergence of opinion with reasons given by some. 
While it is true that less difficulty is encountered in church work 
on account of better methods and organizations, and in some 
few cases, zeal — the principle can be laid down that the path of 
the faithful, devoted, and conscientious pastor is never smooth. 
May succeeding years and reports bring us larger and better 
results.

Report oi Committee on Inner Missions 

We, your Committee on Inner Missions, beg to report that no 
work has been done by the committee, and that no reports of any 
special inner mission activities have been brought to the atten- 
tion of the committee by any of the pastors of the Synod. 



86 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



According to the Treasurer's Report, we find that our Synod 
has contributed to our Inner Mission institutions as follows: 

a. To Orphan Home, Salem, Va., Campaign Fund ....$ 4,592.78 

Current Expense ... 4,621.39 

b. To Lowman Home, White Rock, S. C 1,026.30 



Total for Inner Missions $11,240.47 

The Committee heartily commends these two institutions to the 
congregations of our Synod as deserving their loyal support. 

We also note that two Parish Workers are engaged upon the 
territory of our Synod at the following points: Miss Cora Jeffcoat, 
Watauga Mission; Miss Nellie Park, Andrews. These workers 
are rendering splendid service in their respective fields. 

In order to stimulate a greater interest in Inner Mission activi- 
ties among our congregations, we recommend: That the pastors 
of Synod be requested to report all local Inner Mission activities 
to the Committee on Inner Missions for the information of Synod. 
Respectfully submitted,

The Report of the Committee was adopted. 



Report of Committee on Lutheran Literature 

Your Committee on Lutheran Literature hereby submits its re- 
port. 

I. — If you will compare the reports on the use of Lutheran 
Literature, by our people, this year, with past reports and mark 
especially the reports of last year, you will notice the following 
facts : 

A. Last year 21,896 confirmed members of our Synod received 
1,400 copies of The Lutheran; this year — a greater number of 
members received 1,672 copies, a net gain of 272 copies. 

B. Last year the same number of members received 2,170 
copies of the North Carolina Lutheran, this year 2,600 copies, 
a gain of 430. 

C. Last year the Lutheran Brotherhood received 550 copies 
of the Lutheran Men, this year 960 copies, a net gain of 410. 
This is an enviable record for our men. 

D. Last year 2,919 women received 1,735 copies of Lutheran 
Women's Work, this year a greater number of women (2,956) 
received about 1700 copies, a net loss of about 35 copies. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 87 

E. Last year 2,500 Luther Leaguers received 494 Luther 
League Reviews and 934 copies of Luther League Topics; this 
year the Luther Leaguers received only 325 copies of the Luther 
League Review and 75 copies of the Luther League Topics. This 
is falling off very rapidly in one year. Net loss of 169 Reviews 
and 859 Topics. What is wrong with the Young People? 

F. Last year 132 Sunday Schools with an enrollment of 24,- 
963 members received 582 copies of Lutheran Young Folks and 
1,763 copies of Lutheran Boys and Girls; this year they re- 
ceived 619 copies of Lutheran Young Folks and 1,518 copies of 
Lutheran Boys and Girls. Net gain of 37 Young Folks and net 
loss of 245 Boys and Girls. 

G. Last year 129 copies of the Foreign Missionary were re- 
ceived; this year about 150 copies went into our homes. (Gain 
for the women.) 

H. Last year 175 copies of the Hebrew Lutheran came to 
North Carolina; this year, have not received the exact number, 
but about 180 came to North Carolina. (Same gain.) 

II. — Out of the 10 Lutheran Publications coming to North Caro- 
lina 3 have lost heavily this year and these three are for the 
Young People. The Young People have gained slightly in one 
only. The Young people -are not the only ones to blame. If you 
will look back as far as we have an itemized report and beyond 
in our minutes you will see that some have been on the declining 
list almost all the time. In 1923 the Lutheran had about 3,000 
subscribers and last year 1,400, or less than one-half that number. 
The Foreign Missionary a few years back had about 100 more 
subscribers than now. The Mission Study class may be taking 
its place in some churches. Our young institutions make worthy 
progress and as they become well established, apparently stand 
still. 

Where shall we lay this charge, to the people or to the litera- 
ture. Or is it a clear mark of the signs of the time? 

III. — These conditions should arouse us to do better work along 
these lines of service and efficiency among our people. Our pub- 
lication houses stand ready to assist us in this part of our Chris- 
tian work. 

A word of warning: false teachers are in our midst. Their 
tracts are left at our doors. People will read something. Shall 
we give them the pure doctrine of the Word, or allow others to 
feed them all forms of heresy.

Miscellaneous Matters 

By motion the representative of the Lowman Home, Mr. C. E. 
Hotinger, and the representative of The Lutheran Theological 
Southern Seminary, Rev. W. H. Greever, D.D., were given the 
opportunity of presenting the causes of these institutions at this 
time. 

On recommendation of the Committee on Absentees and Excuses, 
the Rev. C. A. Brown, absent on account of illness, was excused, 
and Rev. G. H. Cox, D.D., led the convention in special prayer 
for his restoration to health and his regular pastoral duties. 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 89 



A motion was passed allowing the President the privilege of 
selecting all appointive committees after his return home from 
this convention and have the same printed in the Minutes of Synod. 

A RESOLUTION 
Offered by Col. A. L. Starr, and Passed by Synod 

Whereas, one of the ever present and perplexing problems of 
the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina is the 
meeting of the apportionment levied upon the several congrega- 
tions of said Synod which apportionment is levied for the advance- 
ment of the work of the North Carolina Synod and the United 
Lutheran Church : and 

Whereas, the Treasurer's Report for the year 1927 shows that 
only about sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of said apportionment 
so levied by and for the Synod and United Lutheran Church, has 
been paid: 

Now, therefore, Be it Resolved: That the North Carolina Synod 
put on during the year, beginning not later than June the first, 
1928, an educational campaign to be known as the "Laymen's 
Apportionment Campaign", the object of which shall be educa- 
tional and inspirational. 

The general plan for this campaign shall be as follows: 

Each conference of the Synod shall be the unit and basis of 
this campaign. 

It shall be the duty of the Secretary of each conference to 
notify each pastor within his conference of the proposed campaign, 
and each pastor shall, with the advice and consent of the council 
of his church select a member of his council, whose duty it shall 
be to inform himself fully upon the subject of Synodical Appor- 
tionment. It shall be the duty of the pastor loci to furnish the 
Secretary of his conference the name of the member so selected 
for the purposes herein mentioned. The member so selected shall 
be ready at all times when called upon, to visit and meet with 
the council of any congregation within his conference, or within 
the Synod, and at that time present to the visited congregation, 
the subject of the annual budget and apportionment levied by 
Synod, and to urge full acceptance and payment thereof. 

It shall be the duty of the President and Secretary of each Con- 
ference to make a list of the congregations within that Conference, 
fix a schedule for visitation, notify the members who have been 
selected, and to notify the pastor loci of the time of such visita- 
tion to his council and church. 

Provided, that the congregations which have paid in full the 
1927 apportionment shall likewise be visited for the purpose of 



90 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



encouragement and where possible to increase the minimum as- 
sessments to the end that the budget as a whole may be raised. 

Provided, that the President of Synod shall have general super- 
vision of this campaign, and shall cause it to be put into effect 
and become operative. 

Be it Resolved, further, That each Brotherhood within the Synod 
be ask to lend its moral and active support to the objects and 
purposes of this resolution. 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. L. STARR. 

Adopted by Synod February 22, 1928. 



Report of Board of Trustees of Lowman Home for 
trie Aged and Helpless for 1927 

The year 1927 has been notable for changes and developments 
at the Lowman Home. Early in the year the three buildings of 
the first group in the plan for permanent equipment were com- 
pleted, and were occupied for the first time on the 24th of March. 
These buildings consist of 1 — Founders' Hall, which is the central 
service building for the whole group, 2 — West Dormitory, ar- 
ranged for a maximum of 28 guests, but normally for 20 guests, 
3 — East Dormitory, similar in all respects to the West Dormitory. 
These buildings are each approximately 100 feet long and 40 
feet wide, all one story except the Founders' Hall which has two 
stories in its front section. These buildings afford 14,000 square 
feet of floor space, and are of semi-fireproof construction, brick 
on hollow tile, with hardwood floors, steam heat, electric lights 
and sewerage. The approximate cost of these three buildings 
was $45,000.00 exclusive of furnishings. 

The most recent building development is the Huffard Memorial 
Cottage, a one-story building with two apartments of four rooms 
and bath in each apartment, designed for two old couples who 
are able to live to themselves, but require the service of the Home. 
This cottage was built by an appropriation of $7,000.00 by Mrs. 
Emma Peters Huffard, wife of the late Rev. James A. Huffard, who 
at the time of his death was pastor of the Lutheran church at 
Kingsport, Tenn. This just completed cottage is now occupied, 
under the condition of the appropriation, by Mrs. Huffard and 
her dependent son, Daniel. Other cottages of similar type are 
in demand, and others will be built by similar arrangements from 
time to time without special appeals to the Church. 

On December 4, 1927, at 3 p.m., the three main buildings and 
the Huffard Memorial Cottage were formally dedicated by an ap- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 91 

propriate service. The service was conducted and the dedication 
performed by the President of the Board. Important announce- 
ments were made by the Superintendent. The formal address, 
of large significance, was delivered by Dr. E. F. Bachmann, 
President of the Board of Inner Mission of the United Lutheran 
Church in America. 

Perhaps the most significant change in physical conditions in 
connection with the institution during the year was occasioned 
by the developments of the Lexington Power Co., on the Saluda 
River. By the construction of an immense dam on the Saluda 
River it was found that a little over 700 acres of the lands of the 
Home would be inundated. By action of the court that land was 
appraised and deeded to the Power Co., for $10,590.00. At a later 
date the removable timber and wood on the land in question was 
estimated and sold for $3,175.00. On account of actual needs of 
more land, after the transfer of that tract, and on account of con- 
sideration of source of this capital fund, the Board purchased 
an additional 114 acres of adjoining land, to good advantage, at 
a cost of $6,950.00 cash. By this purchase the Home acquired a 
body of first class land with a national highway frontage which, 
added to previously acquired frontage, gives the Home exactly 
one mile of highway frontage on the north, with probably about 
the same length of lake frontage on the south. With a balance 
of $6,815.00 in the land capital fund, it is the purpose of the 
Board to erect a suitable farm and dairy barn, to fence certain 
boundaries and to equip the farm with necessary machinery and 
live stock. 

The annual meeting of the Board was held on March 1, 1927, 
at which time Dr. W. H. Greever was elected president, Mr. 
P. C. Price, vice president, and Dr. P. E. Monroe, Secretary. 
Mr. C. E. Hotinger was reelected superintendent and Mr. R. A. 
Yoder, treasurer. The executive committee was constituted by 
adding Mr. P. H. Haltiwanger to the officers. 

The executive committee has held frequent meetings to pass 
on applications and items of policy, and the Board held a special 
meeting on July 1, 1927, to authorize the land transactions referred 
to above, and the Huffard agreement, involving the erection of 
the Cottage referred to. 

The service of the Home has been notably extended since our 
last report. A total of 35 guests have been enrolled during the 
year. Of these two have died, and none have been removed other- 
wise, leaving 33 guests at the present. Enough applications have 
been approved to fill the Home to capacity, and to leave a consid- 
erable waiting list. New applications are received weekly, and 



92 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

on the basis of most worthy cases the need for two additional 
dormitories is imperative. 

Of the guests now enrolled 14 have their support partly or 
fully provided for, and 17 are purely charity guests. Of the 
14 only 6 may be said to have their support fully provided for. 
While a very considerable quantity of food is produced in the 
orchards, gardens and fields of the Home, the needs still exceed 
the supply, and will do so until the farm program now inaugurated 
is realized. This statement shows the need for continuous con- 
tributions. 

The accounts of the treasurer were audited as of June 30, 1927, 
by the official auditors of the U. L. C. A., and the full text of 
report of auditors is on file with the documents of the Board. 
That report is not submitted herewith on account of volume, but 
the following summary statement of assets and liabilities is sub- 
mitted from the treasurer's books as of December 31, 1927, with 
cash account for the year as given in auditor's report.

Annual Report of the Lutheran Orphan Home of the 
South, Salem, Va. 

The regular annual meeting of The Lutheran Orphan Board 
was held at the Home on May 25, 1927, with twenty of the mem- 
bers of the Board present. 

The following members of the Executive Committee were elected: 

Dr. J. Luther Sieber, Roanoke, Va., President. 

Dr. W. J. Finck, New Market, Va., Vice-President. 

Hon. R. W. Kime, Salem, Va., Secretary-Treasurer.

Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 95 



The Executive Committee held regular meetings during the past 
year, and supervised the operation of the Home, together with 
the occupancy of the new Home, and collected as far as pos- 
sible the outstanding pledges for the Home. 

The Rev. Paul Sieg, not wishing to continue his service as Super- 
intendent of the Home, resigned. The Executive Committee was 
instructed to secure the services of the Rev. T. A. Graves, of 
New Market, Va., to become the Superintendent of the Home. 
This has since been accomplished. 

The personnel of the staff, at this time, is as follows: 

Superintendent — Rev. T. A. Graves. 

Assistant Superintendent — Miss Irene L. Mason. 

House Mother of McCIanahan Cottage — Mrs. L. B. Spracher. 

House Mother of Crabtree Cottage — Mrs. W. C. Sluder. 

House Mother of Smaller Boys' Cottage — Mrs. R. L. Wheeler. 

House Mother of Larger Boys' Cottage — Mrs. Janie Bailey. 

Teachers — Miss Mamie MacSherry, Miss Mary Snead and Miss 

Wilhelmina Graham. 
Stenographer — Miss Mary Long. 
Cook — Mrs. Allen Branner. 
Engineer — Mr. V. P. Bockman. 
Farm Manager — Mr. C. E. Lamma. 

At the time of this report there are forty-three boys and fifty- 
nine girls in the Home, divided among the Synods as follows: 

Georgia 2 

Mississippi 1 

North Carolina 39 

South Carolina 8 

Virginia 52 

The cost of operating the Home for the past year has been con- 
siderably more than formerly, but you must take into considera- 
tion that there are more children, and not only more children, 
but we are able to do more for them than formerly. These ex- 
penses, of course, include food, clothing, fuel, salaries and general 
running expenses of the modern plant. We find that the. money 
for current expenses has not been sufficient at all times to pay 
the bills regularly, and the Board sincerely hopes that every Church 
and Sunday School will feel their responsibility in co-operating to 
this end. 

The Board ordered the disposition of the old hotel, which was 
formerly the Home, together with the lots adjacent thereto, and 
the Executive Committee was given full power to execute this

sale. Up to this time, however, no sale has been made of. this 

property. 

The following notes are outstanding on the new buildings: 

Central Manufacturing Co $11,500.00 

First National Exchange Bank 4,000.00 

Farmers National Bank, Salem 9,000.00 

Colonial National Bank, Roanoke 2,500.00 

Mountain Trust Bank, Roanoke 1,500.00 

First National Exchange Bank 2,000.00 

There are sufficient outstanding pledges to pay all these notes, 
and the Executive Committee earnestly asks every pastor to co- 
operate in the collecting and sending in of these pledges at once. 
The following members of the Board, from your Synod: Rev. 
G. W. McClanahan, Rev. J. L. Yost, W. F. Lopp, and H. A. Rhyne, 
terms have expired, and we recommend that you fill these vacancies. 
Respectfully submitted, 

T. A. GRAVES, Superintendent. 



Report of the Board of Trustees of the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary 

The Board of Trustees of the Lutheran Theological Southern 
Seminary met in annual session in the Seminary building, May 
17, 1927. Officers were elected as follows: Rev. H. A. McCullough, 
President; Rev. M. J. Epting, Vice-President; Dr. Charles 
Sancken, Secretary; F. Wm. Cappelmann, Esq., Treasurer. 

The Dean submits the following statement: "The present ses- 
sion opened in September with an enrollment of forty-one students. 
Twenty-seven of the students of the former session returned and 
fourteen new students entered. There are now ten in the Senior 
class, seventeen in the Middle class, and fourteen in the Junior 
class. Of the student body seven are from Virginia, ninteen from 
North Carolina, fourteen from South Carolina and one from 
Georgia. 

"Since the close of the last session the Seminary received from 
Mrs. E. K. Bell, of Baltimore, one hundred and fifty-four (154) 
additional volumes from the library of her husband. In 1926 
Dr. E. K. Bell donated his library to our institution. At the time 
seven hundred and twenty-five (725) volumes, besides numerous 
pamphlets were received. Hence, in all eight hundred seventy-nine 
(879) volumes were added to the library by the liberality of Dr. 
E. K. Bell." 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 97 



This thoughtful and timely liberality of Dr. Bell should be a 
suggestion to other friends of the Seminary. The library needs 
additional books and just such books as are often found in a 
working library of a minister. Send the Seminary any volumes 
you can spare, and designate that your library shall ultimately 
go to the Seminary library. 

Dr. W. H. Greever, Executive Secretary, furnished the follow- 
ing statement of his work: "My work as Executive Secretary 
has had both encouragements and discouragements. In the matter 
of recruiting students the results have been very gratifying as the 
present splendid enrollment indicates, with more students from 
our congregations than previously and with nearly 100% of the 
southern students in our own Seminary. The increase of general 
interest among the people as the result of cultivation is encourag- 
ing and gratifying. The enlistment of special interest on the part 
of an increasing number of individuals is an encouragement, indi- 
cated by special contributions. The achievements in building, 
equipment and improvement of grounds are gratifying. The big 
disappointment is in the failure of congregations to respond to the 
appeal for the building and endowment fund. This appeal has been 
carried explicitly, urgently and repeatedly to all congregations, 
in person, by printed matter and by letter, backed by official action 
of the Board and by all synods. It has been received with ex- 
pressed recognition of its merits and official claims and with 
assurances of interest and sympathy, but without substantial re- 
sponse in a distressingly large number of instances. There has 
been almost no expressed opposition, or even indifference, but 
there has been a persistent postponement which indicates failure 
to actually assume responsibility — mostly on the ground of other 
obligations previously assumed.

The report of the Executive Secretary is plain. He has worked 
heroically, and yet less than one-half of the churches have either 
failed or refused to assume any financial responsibility. We have 
confidence in the whole Church and believe that those which have 
not acted will yet do their part. 

The financial condition of the Seminary is shown by the follow- 
ing statement from the Treasurer, F. Wm. Cappelmann: 

"Reports at Board Meetings cover regular account as Treasurer 
and special account as Treasurer of $300,000.00 Building and En- 
dowment Fund. 

"The May, 1927, report as Treasurer showed expenditures of 
$13,227.49 for the previous year and receipts of $10,116.04, a loss 
of $3,111.45. The income for these current expenses was realized 
from the following sources: 1. Endowment Investments, fund 
about $70,000.00 principal, subject to changes in value of securi- 
ties, and income reduced for several years because of agricultural 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 99 

conditions, all investments at one time having been required in 
farm lands. 2. New endowment of $5,000.00. 3. Seminary Fund 
of South Carolina Synod, yearly income $600.00. 4. Board of 
Education of United Lutheran Church in America, income during 
the period of said report being $2,874.96. 5. Special contributions. 

Income from these sources has varied from time to time and 
has been insufficient for several years so that there exists a cumu- 
lative deficit of about $15,000.00. This means an increasing in- 
debtedness which cannot be met without special provision, either 
by quick increase of endowment so that the income from that 
source above current needs can be used to liquidate this deficit 
or by special contributions for this special purpose. With a larger 
student body and a larger plant the expenses have increased. Since 
said report income has been received from Lott Lindler estate 
lands, which lands when turned into money should realize about 
$15,000.00 for endowment. The Henson bequest should within a 
year increase endowment by $25,000.00 additional. Endowment 
of $300,000.00 is a necessity. 

"May, 1927, report as Treasurer of $300,000.00 Building and 
Endowment Fund shows receipts for the year $22,609.35 and bal- 
ance carried forward from previous statement $17,618.52, total 
$40,227.87, with total disbursements for said period $39,835.11, bal- 
ance on hand $392.76. At that date $13,400.99 remained unpaid 
on the building program of the campaign, being balance on con- 
tract new building, alterations old building to suit the changes 
and increase dormitory space, garages and coal houses for two 
professors' homes, etc. The Board authorized continuation of the 
campaign and directed that the first moneys realized after cam- 
paign expenses be applied towards the $13,400.99 above, and that 
after such payment all funds realized over expenses be applied to 
new endowment. It appears that early in 1928 this result will 
be accomplished and funds be applied then to new endowment." 

One year ago the Board sent the following action to the Synods 
owning and controlling our Seminary: "We recommend an amend- 
ment to the Constitution, Article 3, Section 1, same to read, 'This 
Board shall consist of seven members from the Evangelical Lu- 
theran Synod of South Carolina, six from the United Evangelical 
Lutheran Synod of North Carolina, two from the Evangelical 
Lutheran Synod of Georgia and Adjacent States; five from the 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Virginia; one from the Evangel- 
ical Lutheran Synod of Mississippi. They shall be ordained min- 
isters or laymen, members of the respective Synods named.' " 

We have been officially informed that every Synod adopted the 
recommendation. The Synods are, therefore, requested to elect 
the designated number of trustees.

The Church will be pleased to learn of the action of the Board 
at its last meeting in naming the new administration building the 
"Voigt Building". It is a worthy honor bestowed upon our be- 
loved Dean. 

The Seminary is rendering the Church faithful service and has 
a right to expect the undivided support of the Church. 

H. A. McCULLOUGH, Chairman. 



Report of Chairman of the Board of Trustees for

August 26, 1927) during the year. 

The Chairman begs to submit a brief report of the work of 
the Board. 

I. Board for Educational Institutions. 
1. — Reception and Installation of Members. 

At the first regular meeting of the Board, April 26, 1927, the 
following members, reelected by the Synod at Salisbury for a 
period of three years, were installed, viz:

Swink, Vice Chairman; R. M. Carpenter, Secretary; W. K. 
Mauney, Treasurer. 

3. — Executive Committees. 

Executive Committees for the three institutions were nominated 
by a Committee and elected by the Board. 

Removals and resignations have caused several changes in the 
original of the Committees. 

I give the Committees as now constituted, viz: 

(a) Mont Amoena Seminary — Revs. F. L. Conrad, Chairman; C. 
E. Ridenhour, Secretary; J. C. Dietz; Messrs. H. B. Wil- 
kinson, Treas. ; J. J. Efird; H. E. Isenhour; A. L. Bulwinkle.

Vice Chairman of the Board. 

The Board is deeply conscious of the debt of gratitude it owes 
to our departed brother for the great service he rendered in wise 
counsel and unstinted labor. 

Revs. L. A. Thomas, F. L. Conrad and Mr. J. H. C. Huitt were 
appointed to draft suitable Resolutions. 

"Deeply conscious of the loss to our Board, to the United 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina and the United 
Lutheran Church in America, and with broken hearts in the loss 
of a close personal friend to each of us in the death of Hon. 
L. M. Swink, we the Board of Educational Institutions of the 
United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina do hereby 
adopt the following Resolutions: 

"Resolved : That we hereby express our gratitude to our 
Heavenly Father who gave to us this our Brother and leader 
in His Kingdom, and especially for his long and faithful ser- 
vice in our Synod and on our Board. 

"Resolved: That, having been a pioneer in the union of the 
two synods in our State into one Body, and having given so 
freely of legal advice and sound judgment, we shall greatly miss 
him and our Church will suffer through his death. But that 
we pray to God who gave to us him that He will raise up an- 
other or others to take his place. 

"Resolved: That we, the Board for Educational Institutions, 
do hereby pledge ourselves more fully in solemn service, em- 
ulating the lofty ideal of service expressed by the life of Hon. 
Swink. That motivated by this ideal we foster a greater edu- 
cational program and thereby rendering a broader and deeper 
service to our Great Master and our fellowman. 

"For the Board of Educational Institutions: 

L. A. THOMAS, 
F. L. CONRAD, 
J. H. C. HUITT."

II. Mont Amoena Seminary. 

Prof. J. H. C. Fisher finished the year 1926-1927 in May, ac- 
cording to agreement. 

He reported the work as satisfactory, tne service rendered by 
the Faculty good and the progress of the students commendable. 

A number were recommended for graduation. 

The Seminary did not open in the fall of 1927. 

This state of affairs was brought to the attention of Synod at 
its last meeting. It was then stated if no help should come to 
the Institution it would not open in the fall of 1927. 

The Synod referred the matter of the Seminary back to the 
Board. 

The Board through the Executive Committees of the two institu- 
tions at Mt. Pleasant endeavored to effect some arrangement 
whereby the Seminary might be continued. As yet nothing hope- 
ful has been accomplished. 

Report of a joint meeting of the Executive Committee for Mont 
Amoena Seminary and North Carolina College. 

(In accordance with resolution passed at last meeting of the 
Board of Trustees for Mont Amoena Seminary authorizing the 
executive committee to ascertain what shall be done as to the 
future of Mont Amoena Seminary, and report to the Board, the 
Executive Committees of Mont Amoena Seminary and North Caro- 
lina College held a joint meeting at North Carolina College, on 
May 24, 1927.— Secretary.) 

Prof. J. H. C. Fisher, as Principal of Mont Amoena Seminary 
was called upon and stated the case and conditions of the Seminary. 

He then called upon Prof. McAllister to state to the Executive 
Committee a plan that might be feasible. After hearing expres- 
sions from Profs. McAllister and Fisher with reference to pro- 
visions for the education of our girls, it was moved and carried 
that authorization be granted the management of North Carolina 
College to open the doors of the college to girls; that if it is found 
desirable and feasible Mont Amoena Seminary be continued in 
coordination with the College." 

In his report for Mr. Pleasant Collegiate Institute, Prof. Mc- 
Allister says: "It may be of interest to the Board to know what 
has been done regarding educational facilities for girls at Mt. 
Pleasant. After listening to importunities and carefully consid- 
ering possibilities, in our judgment the most feasible thing to 
do was to admit local girls to classes at the Institute. No boarding 
girl students were admitted except in cases where relatives or close 
friends assumed the responsibility of boarding and caring for the 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 103 



girls. No effort was made to secure girl patronage. Six local 
girls and two boarding girls have been enrolled. This number 
has not been sufficient to call for any material change of policy 
or troublesome adjustments. The Institute being what it is in 
character and policy does not lend itself readily to co-education. 
Any provision for the future, especially on an enlarged scale, for 
taking care of girls, can best be made by arranging for a co-ordi- 
nate school quartered in the Seminary building. This, however, 
is an undertaking which would call for financial backing at least 
until independent income was available from endowment." 

At a meeting of the Board Dec. 8, 1927, the following action 
was taken: 

"It was moved and carried, That the Executive Committee of 
Mont Amoena Seminary be requested to make a full report to the 
Board of Trustees at its next meeting, giving the amount of in- 
debtedness, to whom owing; and also report what the Executive 
Committees did in the matter of making disposition of the Sem- 
inary building, as per previous action of the Board; and what 
recommendations, if any, the Executive Committee has to make." 

The Synod during this year paid the Insurance premium on the 
Seminary property to the amount of $500. 

There is a claim against the Institution in the sum of $3,650.00 
reported last year. If the property stands idle for any length 
of time it will be subject to taxation. 

III. Mt. Pleasant Collegiate Institute (N. C. College) 

1. — Principal McAllister reported the scholastic year very good. 
The Faculty was capable, faithful and efficient. One change in 
the Faculty for 1927-1928 has been made — Captain D. L. Rhoad 
succeeds Capt. R. L. Abstance. 

The spirit of the student body very fine — the best in years. A 
number were recommended for graduation and certification. 

The need of an Athletic Field and urgent need of repairs in 
Main Building were stressed in his report.

4. — In regard to the financial condition of the Institute, the 
Executive Committee on Nov. 15th, 1927, took the following action 
which was approved by the Board Dec. 8, 1927. 

"In view of the fact that notes to the amount of $20,000.00 
against the Board of the Collegiate Institute are due and there 
are not sufficient funds in the Treasury to care for the Interest 
for more than a few months and in view of the fact that at 
present payments on the subscriptions to the Institute are not 
sufficient to pay interest on said notes; 



106 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Therefore be it resolved, 

(1st) That immediate steps be taken to put on a "Clean-Up 
Campaign" for the Collegiate Institute and that a Committee 
be appointed at this time to put the same into effect. 

Committee— C. E. Ridenhour, Prof. G. F. McAllister, H. B. 
Wilkinson and H. E. Isenhour. 

(2nd) That the Board take such steps as may be necessary 
to pay the indebtedness on the Institute. 

The Board at its meeting Dec. 8, 1927, referred this item to the 
Executive Committee and called its attention to Sec. 8 of Charter 
of N. C. College concerning loans. 

("Section 8. — That the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod 
of North Carolina and its successors in office may make such 
loans and donations to said College as may be deemed advisable. 
.... The said Board of Trustees shall have a right to make such 
conveyances to said Synod to secure loans and donations as may 
be mutually agreed upon by the Executive Committee of the re- 
spective bodies.") 

5. — By motion made and carried, Mt. Pleasant Collegiate Insti- 
tute (N. C. College) was granted permission to solicit cash dona- 
tions to be used in erecting a Hall to replace the one lost by fire. 

6. — By motion made and carried, the action of the Executive 
Committee of Synod relative to Insurance paid by Synod on Mt. 
Pleasant Collegiate Institute (N. C. College) and Mont Amoena 
Seminary was referred to the Executive Committees of the two 
institutions. 

Resolutions adopted by the Executive Committee of the United 
Evangelical Synod of North Carolina, August 4th, 1927. 

Resolved, That in view of the fact that the Board. of Trustees 
for Educational Institutions at a meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee, prior to the last meeting of Synod, requested said Execu- 
tive Committee to take care of certain items of insurance upon 
buildings of our institutions, and 

Whereas, the Executive Committee recommended that this in- 
surance debt be paid, and 

Whereas, Synod authorized the debt to be paid, and at the same 
time requested the Executive Committee to devise ways and means 
to reimburse the Synodical Treasury, and 

Whereas, the Executive Committee has taken such steps, 

Now, therefore, Be it Resolved, by the Executive Committee that 
the Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions be requested 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 107 



to take such steps as will insure the future payment of insur- 
ance from revenues derived from the institutions. 

In closing this part of the report, the Chairman of the Board 
feels that he owes it to the Synod to state candidly that, there is 
little hope of securing funds from Pledges to pay the $20,000.00 
referred to in item 4, and that Synod will have to take steps to 
carry this debt. 

IV. Lenoir-Rhyne College. 

1. — General. 

Notwithstanding the handicap and element of uneasiness and 
uncertainty incident upon the burning of the Administration Build- 
ing Jan. 6, 1927 — the scholastic year 1926-1927 was very success- 
ful. By the hearty cooperation of Faculty and students, the school 
kept going with a minimum of inconvenience. Everywhere and by 
everyone, the "never-give-up" spirit was manifested. 

The health of the students was good. The deportment and in- 
tellectual progress commendable. 

2. — Graduates. 

The Faculty recommended 48 for graduation in the B.A. Course, 
11 in Shorthand and Typewriting and 5 in Bookkeeping. 

Practically all our available room was taken by returning and 
new students in the fall. The work during this part of the year 
is very satisfactory. 

3. — Faculty. 

The personnel of the Faculty is the same as last year with the 
exception of that of the Chair of Ancient Languages held by Prof. 
P. E. Wright, deceased, to which place Prof. L. F. Hackeman was 
elected. 

The salaries of the regular Professors was raised in accordance 
with the schedule previously adopted by the Board. These in- 
creases went into effect in the Fall of 1927. 

4. — Leave of Absence. 

The following members of the Faculty have been granted leave 
of absence as indicated herewith: 

(a) Prof. G. R. Patterson, during the summer of 1927, to com- 
plete his M.A. work at University of Kansas. 

(b) Prof. E. B. Setzler, fall of 1927, to finish his Ph.D. work 
at University of N. C. 

(c) Prof. S. J. Marion, spring of 1928, to complete his Ph.D. 
work at Columbia University. 



108 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



(d) Profs. V. V. Aderholdt and M. C. Yoder, for 1928-1929, to 
continue their Graduate work. 

5. — Summer School. 

A very successful Summer School of 12 weeks was conducted 
by Prof. E. L. Setzler in the absence of Prof. Patterson. 

6. — Business Transactions. 

(1) SALE OF PROPERTY. 

(a) A Special Committee, consisting of President of Board, 
President of the College and Chairman of Loan Committee, was 
authorized to liquidate the J. J. George Property at Bessemer City. 

The Chairman of the Board entered into contract with Mr. J. A. 
Moretz to handle the sales March 21, 1927. The entire property 
was disposed of in about 3 months. 

Total amount involved, including a subscription of Mr. 

George, (1923, $4,000) and all expenses of sale $63,757.49 

Amount of Sale 64,400.00 

(b) On April 11, 1927, the same Committee bid in certain prop- 
erty at Cherryville, known as the S. S. Mauney property, on which 
Lenoir-Rhyne College held a mortgage, for $25,800.00. 

The sale was confirmed by Referee in Bankruptcy, May 5th, 1927, 
and a Deed was made to Lenoir-Rhyne College by Trustee White 
Ware. 

The Chairman of the Board, June 22, 1927, contracted with Mr. 
J. A. Moretz for the sale of this property. It is a valuable prop- 
erty in the heart of the town of Cherryville. Very little of it has 
been disposed of as yet. 

(2) BONDS SOLD. 

Acting upon the recommendation and authorization of the Board 
of Trustees of Lenoir-Rhyne College and the endorsement of Synod 
at Salisbury Feb., 1927, the Executive Committee of Lenoir-Rhyne 
College, June 18, 1927, effected a loan from Lewis W. Thompson 
& Co., Inc., of St. Louis, Mo., to the amount of $200,000 to bear 
interest at 6%, payable semi-annually and as evidence of said 
loan, executed and issued a series of First Mortgage Gold Coupon 
Bonds of Lenoir-Rhyne College to the amount of $200,000. 

To secure this loan, a First Mortgage Deed of Trust on the Real 
Estate of Lenoir-Rhyne College at Hickory, N. C, also certain 
Notes and Stocks were given as further Collateral Security. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 109 

The Officers of Synod, as authorized at Salisbury, also endorsed 
the Bonds. 

(3) BUILDING PROGRAM. 

1. Mr. Charles C. Hartman of Greensboro, N. C, was retained 
as architect and instructed to complete his tentative plans for 
the Daniel Efird Rhyne Administration Building and the Mauney 
Hall. He was also instructed to prepare preliminary plans for a 
Refectory. 

2. Upon the suggestion of the Education Commission of U. L. C. 
and advice of Architect Hartman, a new map of grounds, with 
proposed location of new buildings was presented to and adopted 
by the Board April 26, 1927. 

3. On June 5th, Walter Kidde & Co. of New York and Greens- 
boro, N. C, was awarded the contract to erect the Administration 
Building and Dormitory for Girls as per Architect Hartman's 
plans. Later the contract to erect the Refectory was awarded to 
the same company.

Uncounted uncollected pledges $120,000.00 

The Women's Educational League was invited to furnish rooms 
in Mauney Hall at approximately $125.00 per room. 

(4) BUILDING OPERATIONS. 

Ground was broken for the two buildings, July 11, 1927. The 
cornerstone of Mauney Hall was laid Sept. 19, 1927, and Admin- 
istration Building Sept. 28, 1927. The donors of each of the build- 
ings were present and took part in the ceremonies. 

According to promise of contractors, Mauney Hall will be ready 
for occupancy February 1, 1928, and the other two buildings soon 
after. Thus, by the blessing and direction of our God and Father 
and the generosity of His servants, in less than 13 months, out of 
the ruin — smoke, ashes and gloom of the burning of "Old Main" — 
have sprung a modern fire-proof Dormitory with all conveniences 
for the comfort and safety of our daughters; a magnificent, mod- 
ern, fire-proof Administration Building, adequate for all admin- 
istrative needs for many years to come; a commodious Refectory 
having rooms for the Matron and Help, Cooking Department, 
Storage, and a seating capacity for more than 350, with the latest 
conveniences and equipment for service. 

(5) FURTHER NEEDS. 

1. The College has made a fine beginning this year but the 
program is not completed. A Fine Arts and Auditorium Building 
is an imperative need. The place for it has been designated on 
the Campus. The architect has drawn the tentative plan. The 
estimated cost of construction is $200,000. Are there not groups 
of men, or families, in our Church who would make this building 
possible? 

2. A new fire-proof Library is very much needed for the safety 
of our growing library. For years the friends of Dr. J. C. Moser 
have talked of erecting such a building to his memory. Can these 
good intentions not be made to materialize? 

3. A larger Endowment. The year 1930 has been designated 
"Education Year" and as the time for presenting the needs of 
Lenoir-Rhyne College. 

Let everyone begin now to plan and work to adequately endow 
the College that it may take its rightful place among the edu- 
cative agencies of the State and Church. 

(6) MISCELLANEOUS.

Report of Committee on Church Institutions 

Your Committee on Church Institutions herewith submits the 
following report: 

I.— The Lowman Home for the Aged and Helpless. 

The building program which has been carried out the past year 
has given all who have in any way come in contact with the Insti- 
tution an enlarged vision of the Church's opportunity in serving 
God by ministering to the aged and helpless. 

The Home is growing in favor with our people and we rejoice 
in the fact that the Home is meriting the large and favorable 
place it is gaining under the efficient management of Dr. W. H. 
Greever, President of the Board of Directors, and Mr. C. E. 
Hotinger, Superintendent of the Home. 

Therefore be it resolved: 1. That the United Evangelical Lu- 
theran Synod of North Carolina hereby express its appreciation 
of the fine services rendered the Home by Superintendent Mr. C. 
E. Hotinger and Dr. W. H. Greever, President of the Board of 
Directors. 

Resolved: 2. That we express our appreciation of the liberal- 
ity of Mrs. Emma Peters Huffard as expressed in the building of 
a $7,000.00 cottage to be known as the Huffard Memorial, in mem- 
ory of her deceased husband, the Reverend James A. Huffard, who 
at the time of his death was Secretary of the Board of Directors 
and pastor of the Lutheran church at Kingsport, Tenn. 

Resolved: 3. That in view of the conditions created by the erec- 
tion of the Saluda Dam, making community readjustments neces- 
sary, the Board of Directors of the Lowman Home for the Aged 
and Helpless, at White Rock, S. C, is hereby authorized and em- 
powered to sell and make deed to such parcel or parcels of land 
as in its judgment is for the greatest permanent benefit of the 
institution, at any time within the year 1928. 

Resolved: 4. That we reaffirm our loyalty to the Lowman 
Home for the Aged and Helpless and that we most sincerely com- 
mend it to the generous support of our people. 

II. — The Lutheran Orphan Home of the South. 

This institution of our Church during the past year also com- 
pleted a very fine building program on one of the most beautiful 
sites to be found anywhere. We rejoice that the orphans of our 
Church may now be housed in buildings meeting all the require- 
ments for living and education in this modern age. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 125 



Be it resolved: 1. That we assure the new Superintendent, the 
Reverend T. A. Graves, of our most hearty support and that we 
assure all those associated with him in the Home of our most 
sincere appreciation of their services in our Orphan Home. 

Resolved: 2. That we urge our church councils to see that 
all outstanding pledges to the Building Fund be paid as soon as 
possible. 

Resolved: 3. That we impress upon our congregations the im- 
portance every church having a systematic plan of gathering cur- 
rent support for the Orphan Home in the Sunday Schools and 
that every congregation give one offering per year, preferably 
at Thanksgiving or Christmas, for the support of the Orphan 
Home. 

III. — The Lutheran Theological Seminary. 

We rejoice in the large number of students (41) in our Theo- 
logical Seminary, yet when we consider our many vacant pastor- 
ates and the unlimited mission field right here in the South we 
feel the force of the Master's words: "The harvest truly is great, 
but the laborers are few," and that we should without ceasing pray 
the Lord of the harvest that He would send forth laborers into 
the vineyard. 

Resolved: 1. That we have learned with pleasure of the prog- 
ress of the Endowment and Building Funds and that we pledge 
our support to these two endeavors of the Theological Seminary 
until the funds are raised. 

Resolved: 2. That the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod 
of North Carolina is pleased to learn of the action of the Board of 
Trustees at its last meeting in naming the New Administration 
building the Voigt Building. It is a worthy honor bestowed upon 
our Dean. 

Resolved: 3. That we assure those in charge of our Theolog- 
ical Seminary that we appreciate their faithful services and that 
we pledge to this institution our undivided support in commend- 
ing our Theological Seminary to our young men with the min- 
istry in view and to our congregations for their moral and finan- 
cial support. 

IV. — Lenoir-Rhyne College. 

From a study of the report of the Board of Trustees it is easy 
to observe that the Board during the past year has been very 
active in projecting a "Greater Lenoir-Rhyne". 

Of this, the fourth institution in our report, we must record 
as of the three considered above, that the past year has witnessed 



126 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



an unusual building program. With this building program Lenoir- 
Rhyne will be admirably equipped to begin the next scholastic 
year as a new era of the highest grade work. 

We note with gratification, the fine deportment, good health and 
commendable progress of the student body, and that there has been 
a hearty cooperation of the Administration — the Faculty — and 
student body. 

While we rejoice in the fact that a fine building program is 
nearing completion, we should bear in mind that buildings as 
necessary as they are, do not make a college, nor do buildings plus 
a strong faculty. The college exists for the young men and 
young women of the Church. 

Therefore be it resolved: 1. That we pledge to Lenoir-Rhyne 
College our loyal support in giving our sons and daughters to this 
institution that their education may be continued in the same 
Christian spirit as they enjoy in the home church, and that we 
assure the administration of this our Lutheran college, of our best 
efforts in securing the students of our congregations for Lenoir- 
Rhyne College. 

Resolved: 2. Inasmuch as the year 1930 has been designated 
by the United Lutheran Church as Educational Year and that the 
United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina at its last 
meeting designated that year as the approved year for a strong 
presentation of the necessity and requirements of Lenoir-Rhyne 
College, we therefore request the Board of Trustees to formulate 
plans for the 1930 campaign year and report at the next meeting 
of Synod. 

Resolved: 3. That the request of the Board of Trustees that 
the selection of faculty be by the Executive Committee of the 
Board of Trustees for Lenoir-Rhyne, be granted. 

V. — Mont Amoena Seminary. 

We realize that a very fine work has been done by Mont Amoena 
Seminary and that the Church is deeply indebted to those who 
have managed the institution in the past years, yet we believe 
that in the present educational developments it was not best to 
continue the activities of the institution longer. 

We recommend that all matters pertaining to the property of 
Mont Amoena Seminary and all other business matters be referred 
to the Board of Trustees of Mont Amoena Seminary. 

IV. — Collegiate Institute. 

We are appreciative of the excellent work of the Collegiate In- 
stitute and note with pleasure that the past year has been a 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 127 



good one and that there has been a very fine spirit manifested by 
the student body. We recommend that the debt on the new Dor- 
mitory of $20,000.00, be referred to the Board of Trustees of 
North Carolina College in cooperation with the Executive Com- 
mittee of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Caro- 
lina. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

P. E. MONROE, 
L. D. MILLER, 
E. FULENWIDER, 
J. V. SUTTON.

ceived for consideration by item. 

Item I. — Lowman Home. Sub-items 1, 2, 3, and 4 were adopted 
in turn.

taining to the Orphan Home Superintendent T. A. Graves was

This being a national holiday, the birthday of George Wash- 
ington, the morning session was closed with a patriotic service. 
A large American flag was carried up the aisle to the altar, fol- 
lowed in procession by pastors and delegates who had been in 
the service during the World War. The congregation standing 
sang "My Country 'tis of thee". Rev. H. B. Schaeffer led in 
prayer, and Rev. E. F. Keever, D.D., made an address appropriate 
to the occasion. 



Wednesday, February 22, 1928, 2 P.M.

Report of Board of Ministerial Pensions and Relief 

The Board of Ministerial Pensions and Relief makes the follow- 
ing report: 

There are now on the Pension list of the United Synod of North 
Carolina January 1, 1928, 6 retired ministers, 22 widows and 6 
children, who are receiving this year $6,500.00 in pensions and 
$890.00 for relief, thus making a total of $7,390.00. 

Recommendation 

Since the amount of money available from the Pension Fund 
this year (as one-fifth only is to be paid in at this time) will not 
be sufficient to care for the dependent ministers, widows and 
children, the aforesaid board is asking that the congregations and 
Sunday Schools take a special offering some time during the year 
for this purpose. 

And that an offering be taken, also for this purpose, at one 
of the sessions of this Synod. 

As a token of appreciation for the service rendered in raising 
the United Synod of North Carolina's quota of the $4,000,000 
Pension Fund, that this convention of Synod express its appre- 
ciation and thanks to Mr. James L. Fisher, Salisbury, N. C, spe- 
cial chairman of this campaign and his co-workers, by a rising vote. 
Respectfully submitted, 

C. P. FISHER, Chairman. 

The Report was received, and adopted by a rising vote.

Now, Mr. President, since our Synod has gone on record, spon- 
soring this worthy cause, and pledging its earnest support, and 
gathering from the above report that some sections of our Synod, 
and certain churches of other sections of our Synod, have re- 
sponded so satisfactorily, and finding that of the $125,000 quota, 
there still remains a balance of $46,118.90 unpledged, but against 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 131 



which more than one-third of our churches have made no response, 
your chairman, if in order, would like to recommend the following: 

1. — That in order to give the work the necessary momentum it 
needs at this time, the Synod go on record, pledging its earnest 
support in anyway it can, especially requesting all its pastors 
to return to their respective charges and immediately put on 
their canvasses, unless it has already been done. In cases 
where canvasses have been put on to push same to a sat- 
isfactory conclusion. 

2. — That the Synod, through its president, as soon after adjourn- 
ment as practicable, call a meeting of Conference Presidents, 
with the several conference chairmen and your special chair- 
man, to go into the situation and devise means of prosecuting 
the campaign to a successful conclusion. 

3. — That the report herewith submitted be received merely as in- 
formation, and that a final report be submitted and entered 
as a permanent record. 

J. L. FISHER, Chairman. 
Salisbury, N. C, Feb. 22, 1928. 

The report was adopted, including recommendations 1, 2 and 3.

Report of Committee on Sunday School Work 

We, your Committee on Sunday School work, beg leave to re- 
port that the work of the Sunday Schools of the Synod as repre- 
sented in the Lutheran Sunday School Association of N. C, has 
made progress during the year. The annual meeting was held 
in connection with the Summer School for Church Workers, at Mt. 
Pleasant, July 14th. The following officers were elected for the 
year: Homer L. Lyerly, Pres. ; Luther A. Lippard, Vice-Pres.; 
Miss Rosa Sox, reelected Secretary; and Miss Ruth Shirey, Treas. 

The Association through its executive committee decided to hold 
five leadership training schools. Such schools are being held at 
St. John's, Salisbury, beginning Jan. 9th, St. Paul's, Rowan, Jan. 
10th, Salem, Salem pastorate, Jan. 11th, Holy Trinity, Hickory, 
Jan. 12th and St. James', Newton, Jan. 13th. These schools are 
well attended and commendable work is being done in their initial 
effort in this field. The 14 regional districts held spring meetings, 
but no meetings were reported for the fall. 

The following is taken verbatim from the report of the associa- 
tion in regard to membership. "It seems to be the opinion of many 
of the schools, that if it pays its assessment it is considered a 
member of the association and if it does not pay it is not a mem- 
ber. This will mean that a school may be a member one year and 
the next year not a member, and something more definite is de- 
sired. The following item is the action of the association. Rec- 
ommended: "That Synod interpret and define the requirements 
for membership in the Association." 

We recommend: 

1. — That a Sunday School that has made application for mem- 
bership in the Association is considered a member. 
2. — That Synod approve the organization of district associations 

within the state association. 
3. — That Synod approve the holding of district meetings semi- 
annually. 
4. — That the names of the Sunday School Superintendents be car- 
ried in the minutes of Synod as last year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

H. P. WYRICK, 
JAS. D. KINARD, D.D., 
M. L. KESTER, 
HON. A. L. STARR, 
J. P. BURNS. 

The report of the committee, including recommendations 1, 2, 3 
and 4, was adopted. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 135 



Report of Fraternal Delegate to Virginia Synod 

On account of sickness your delegate to the Virginia Synod 
was unable to attend the meeting of that Synod. However a mes- 
sage of greetings and good wishes of the North Carolina Synod 
was sent to the Virginia Synod. 

In view of the fact that the Virginia Synod has discontinued 
the practice of sending fraternal delegates to sister synods, and 
in view of the fact that the letter of greetings from the Virginia 
Synod has officially stated this fact, therefore, we recommend that 
the North Carolina Synod take similar action relative to the 
Virginia Synod. 

CHARLES E. RIDENHOUR. 

The letter of greeting from the Virginia Synod was read, and 
received as information. 

The report, including the recommendation, was adopted. 



Report of Fraternal Delegate to Soutk Carolina 

Synod 

As the fraternal representative to bear the greetings of this 
Synod to the Synod of South Carolina, I beg to report that I was 
unable to attend the recent convention of that Synod, and, there- 
fore, conveyed our greetings by letter, which greetings I feel sure 
were in due course presented to that body. 
Respectfully submitted, 

V. Y. BOOZER. 

The report was adopted.

Delegates 

We, your Committee to Nominate Fraternal Delegates, desire

lina Synod.

We, your Committee on Resolutions, beg leave to make the 
following report. 

Be it resolved, 

1. — That Synod express, by rising vote, its thanks and apprecia- 
tion to the Pastor and members and friends of Augsburg con- 
gregation, for their whole-hearted and delightful entertain- 
ment of Synod, and to the Augsburg choir for their splendid 
music rendered in the services. 

2. — That this body heartily congratulate the Pastor and people of 
this congregation in the erection of this beautiful, commodious, 
serviceable and churchly structure, and, that we heartily com- 
mend their zealous spirit as a model for all our pastors and 
congregations to follow, and that resolutions 1 and 2 be read 
at a Divine Service of this congregation. 

3. — That we most highly commend Mr. J. L. Fisher, Synodical 
chairman on Ministerial Pension and Relief Appeal, and the 
entire personnel of the Synodical organization, for their pains- 
taking and faithful work in prosecuting the Ministerial Pen- 
sion Appeal. 

4. — That we learn with profound sorrow of the critical illness of 
Mrs. Laura S. Hahn, the devoted mother of our beloved brother 
and Pastor of this congregation, the Rev. S. W. Hahn, and 
fervently pray God that it may be His gracious and good 
will through our blessed Lord Jesus to speedily restore this 
godly mother to normal health. 

5. — That Synod express its appreciation to the Rev. D. P. Rudisill 
for his efficient service through the Public Press; and that 
Synod pay all expenses of the Committee on Publicity; and 
that the chairman of the Committee express Synod's thanks 
to the papers of Winston-Salem. 

6. — That as the new buildings at Lenoir-Rhyne College are soon 
to be completed and consecrated to the work of Christian edu- 



138 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



cation, Synod hereby again expresses its grateful apprecia- 
tion to Mr. Daniel Efird Rhyne, the donor of the new Admin- 
istration building, and to the donors of Mauney Hall, our new 
dormitory for girls, namely: Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Mauney, 
who contributed $35,000; Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Mauney, who con- 
tributed $35,000 in memory of their daughter Edith Eudora; 
Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Rudisill; Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Mauney; 
Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Mauney and the Rev. and Mrs. E. C. 
Cooper. The generous works of these friends of the Church 
and College are inspiring to us; have greatly advanced the 
progress in Christian education in our Synod and State; and 
we trust will be a mighty incentive to others to do likewise 
in the continued needs of our institutions. And that this ac- 
tion be officially read at the dedicatory service of these build- 
ings. 
7. — We note with deep interest the splendid missionary work of 
the congregations: St. Paul's, Wilmington, and St. Matthew's, 
Kings Mountain, which congregations are contributing liber- 
ally to the salary of the missionaries in the Eastern and West- 
ern Fields respectively of our Synod, and hereby Synod com- 
mends these congregations for such fine work. And inasmuch 
as a more intensive and extensive missionating endeavor and 
program is an urgent need in the great undeveloped mission 
fields in our State, therefore, be it resolved, that Synod urge 
all congregations/ as many as are able, to choose some defi- 
nite mission or place for their special missionary activity. 
Respectfully submitted,

RESOLUTION 



Whereas it appears that many confirmed Lutherans of the North 
Carolina Synod are listed as "non-resident"; 

And whereas, many of these are inactive due to the fact that 
no obligation is felt toward the church in whose midst they reside 
but of which they are not members; 

Therefore, be it Resolved: That this Synod go on record as 
favoring, and it does strongly and vigorously urge its members, 
when removing from the territory of the church where member- 
ship is held into another parish, to secure a letter of transfer 
immediately and thus become regularly identified with the work 
of the church located in the new home, and that they move their 
transfer as consistently as they do their trunk, and as often, if 
necessary. 

E. A. SHENK. 

The resolution was adopted. 



A motion was passed that the Card Record method for enroll- 
ment of Clerical and Lay representatives be adopted in place of 
the present methods of calling the roll, and that Synod provide 
such cards for use in future conventions of Synod. 

A motion also prevailed that a committee be appointed to put 
this system into operation. 

A motion was passed leaving the number of minutes of Synod 
to be printed in the hands of the President and Secretary.

Southern Theological Seminary in which he states that he has

ordination by this Synod upon the completion of his course 
in the Seminary as Synod has directed by resolution. (See

Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 143 



Report of Necrologist 

Once again death has invaded our ministerial ranks, 
and God has taken away our dearly beloved brother, 
Martin Luther Pence. He was born near Coote's Store, 
in Rockingham Co., Va., on September 22, 1865; and 
while engaged in his "Loved Employ", preaching the 
blessed gospel, from the pulpit of Friendship E. L. 
Church, near Taylorsville, N. C, on April 25, 1926, he 
heard his Master call, "Come up higher," and almost 
instantly passed from the cares, labors and trials of this 
life, into the peace, joy and eternal happiness of heaven, 
having lived in this world 60 years, seven months and 
three days. 

He was baptised in infancy and was confirmed in 
Rader's Church, Va., by the Rev. Dr. J. P. Stirewalt, on 
May 7, 1884, when just a little over 18 years of age. 

He took his literary course at Lenoir College, graduat- 
ing in 1896, and studied theology under the care and in- 
struction of Dr. R. A. Yoder. He was ordained by the 
Tennessee Synod, in Christ Church, Stanly Creek, Gaston 
County, N. C, on October 19, 1896. Thus he was in the 
active work of the ministry 29 years, 6 months and 6 
days. He served pastorates in North and South Carolina 
and in Virginia. 

He was an earnest, forcible and faithful preacher of 
the Word, and a pleasant, prudent and efficient pastor, 
winning the love and respect of all who knew him, and 
will be long remembered as an earnest worker and a 
faithful servant of his Lord. 

I recommend that this report be adopted by a standing 
vote, and that a page of the minutes be set apart to 
his memory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEO. H. COX, Necrologist.

LENOIR RHTNE COLLEGE 

AT HICKORY, N. C. 

On the Border of the Land of the Shy 

(A LUTHERAN COLLEGE ESTABLISHED PARTICU- 
LARLY AND ESPECIALLY FOR THE EDUCA- 
TION OF LUTHERAN BOYS AND GIRLS) 

Every Pastor and Congregation in the Synod of 
North Carolina has had a share in the develop- 
ment and progress of Lenoir Rhyne College- 
How many Pastors and Congregations have repre- 
sentation in the student body at Lenoir Rhyne? 
Many have no representation; some have a large 
representation. 

Lenoir Rhyne College has splendid buildings and 
equipment, a capable faculty, fine student body 
of 325, and is fully accredited. Instead of 185 
Lutheran students we should have 250 in at- 
tendance. We seek to serve our Lutheran boys 
and girls. 

College expenses for the year, $356.00 to $380.00. 

Oakview Hall will be open to girls desiring less ex- 
pensive rooms, or who would like to do their 
own housekeeping. Tuition, fees, and room 
would cost $165.00.

Report oi the President 

> 
Dear Brethren in Christ Jesus: 

By the mercies of a kind Heavenly Father we have been blest 
to come together in this our one hundred and twenty-fifth annual 
convention of Synod. At this meeting we will miss the face and 
counsel of one of our ministerial brethren who was dear to all 
of us, the Rev. G. H. Cox, D.D., who was called to his heavenly 
reward on Friday, December the 7th, 1928. By this dispensation 
of Providence, a long and useful life has been brought to its close. 
Doctor Cox had passed his ninety-first milepost in life's journey, 
fifty-six years of which were given to the Gospel Ministry. The 
Doctor will be missed in many ways, but the fruits of his labors 
will remain with us. A suitable memorial will be offered by the 
Necrologist for adoption at this meeting. 

The work of the Synod has gone on regularly throughout the 
year. However, the finances of some of the congregations were 
below normal and slow reaching the Treasury of Synod at times 
as they were needed. Nevertheless it is peculiarly gratifying to 
note that the total amount received on apportionments this year 
is $3,582 more than was received on apportionments last year. 
Some of our pastors suffered prolonged illness during the year, 
but we are glad to report that they are able to be back in their 
work again, and well on the road to complete recovery. An epi- 
demic of influenza spread over the country during the latter end 
of the synodical year, and scores of our own people were, at one 
time or another, afflicted with the disease, and in some communi- 
ties a number of deaths resulted from it. We are especially grati- 
fied to note here the continued good health and strength of our 
senior minister of Synod, the Rev. L. A. Bikle, D.D., and shall 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 17 



feel honored to have his presence and counsel in these meetings. 
Doctor Bikle had the distinguished honor of casting his ballot in 
the recent national election on his ninety-fifth birthday. 

The period which this report covers marks an even fifty years 
in the Gospel Ministry for the Rev. B. S. Brown, D.D., who was 
ordained by the North Carolina Synod in Friedens Lutheran 
Church, on May the 5th, 1878. We congratulate Doctor Brown 
upon this mark of distinction which comes to him through so many 
years of faithful and efficient services in this holy calling, and are 
more than glad to have him with us on this occasion, and to profit 
by his counsels. 

Again we call attention to the requirement of Synod for all 
vacant congregations, through their officials, to confer with the 
President of Synod in case of vacancy or efforts to secure a pastor. 
Where this rule has been carried out, not much delay or difficulty 
has been experienced in filling vacancies. This rule applies not 
only to mission congregations, but to all others as well. 

The Synod most deeply appreciates the honor of being privi- 
leged to hold this convention in this new and beautiful St. James' 
Lutheran Church, in the growing city of Concord. We are sure 
that every one who shares these privileges will carry home with 
him a feeling of deep indebtedness to Pastor L. A. Thomas and 
his congregation for their thoughtfulness for our every comfort 
and enjoyment while guests among them. It is also t*o be hoped 
that after having spent these few days here and meeting in this 
building, many will carry back with them inspiration and helpful 
ideas for the improvement of their own church plants. 

I submit herewith an outline of my official acts during the past 
year, together with certain other information, for your review 
and disposal at this convention of Synod.

of the new St. James' Lutheran Church in Rockwell was laid by 
the pastor, Rev. C. P. Fisher, assisted by Rev. G. H. Cox, D.D., 
and your President. Other ministers present and joining in the 
services were Rev. L. E. Blackwelder, Rev. C. E. Ridenhour, and 
Rev. B. M. Clark, together with the pastor of the Reformed Church 
of Rockwell. The sermon for the occasion was preached in the 
morning by Dr. Cox, and an address was delivered in the afternoon 
by the President of Synod, and greetings were offered by the 
other visiting ministers. This is a splendid church, and it has 
been built on practically a cash basis, for which the pastor and 
congregation deserve commendation. 

2. — The cornerstone of Grace Lutheran Church in Boone was 
laid on Thanksgiving Day by the pastor, Rev. J. A. Yount. The 
address for the occasion was delivered by Rev. H. B. Schaeffer, 
D.D., in the presence of a good congregation. The building has 
since been practically completed. For fuller report see Report on 
Missions for this Synod.

IX. — Dedications. 

1. — St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Andrews, N. C, was ded- 
icated on Sunday, April the 29th, 1928, by your President. The 
sermon for the occasion was preached by Rev. W. H. Greever, 
D.D., and an address was made by Mrs. J. L. Morgan, President 
of the Women's Synodical Missionary Society. Rev. W. H. Lef- 
stead, the pastor of the church, was in charge of the services. A 
report of this work was given last year, however it will be of 
interest to note here that the building has been completed, a pipe 
organ has been installed, and everything is in shape for splendid 
work. 

2. — Coble's new house of worship was dedicated on Sunday, July 
1, 1928, by Pastor D. I. Offman and your President, in the presence 
of a large and devoted congregation. The sermon was preached 
by your President, and addresses were made by Pastor Offman 
and others. This is a splendid church, and stands as a mark of 
commendable progress by the congregation under the appreciated 
leadership of their pastor, the Rev. D. I. Offman. The old church 
has been rolled back on the church yard and serves splendidly as 
a church community house. Report of this work was given last 
year. 

3. — The three new buildings of Lenoir Rhyne College, namely the 
Daniel E. Rhyne Administration Building, the Mauney Hall, and 
the Refectory, were dedicated by the College President, Rev. H. B. 
Schaeffer, on June the 4th, 1928, for which occasion I was invited 
to make an address. However, we assume that these services 
will be reported by the College Board, and hence no further mention 
of same will be made in this connection. 

X. — Opening of Neiv Churches. 

1. — St. James' new Lutheran church of Concord was formally 
opened for divine worship on Sunday morning of September the 
2nd, 1928, by the pastor of the congregation, the Rev. L. A. Thomas, 
who had charge of the services and preached the opening sermon. 
A program of sacred music was rendered that night, and for 
several evenings following, services were held, when in turn Rev. 
H. A. McCullough, D.D., Rev. P. D. Brown, D.D., Rev. H. B. 
Schaeffer, D.D., Rev. J. L. Sieber, D.D., Rev. L. C. Bumgarner, 
and your President were invited to preach. Greetings were also 
presented by Rev J. C. Rowan, D.D., for the other churches of the 
city. A report of this work was given last year, however we are 
sure that the entire delegation of this Synod will agree in saying 
that this is one of the best churches in our Synod. In the build- 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 21 



ing of this plant, Pastor Thomas and his congregation have made 
a distinct contribution to Lutheranism and at once to Christian 
worship in general. 

2. — The new Trinity Lutheran Church at Landis was formally 
opened for divine services on Sunday, December the 2nd, 1928. 
The sermon was preached for the occasion by the President of 
Synod, and the Holy Communion was administered. Rev. C. 0. 
Lippard, the pastor of the church, had carefully arranged an ap- 
propriate program for the day, but, unfortunately and much to 
the regret of his congregation, he was unwell on that day and 
hence unable to carry out the full program. The congregation 
had been using the basement of the church for some time already, 
but not the main auditorium. This is a splendid and beautiful 
church, fully equipped with modern furnishings, and so arranged 
as to provide for Sunday school and other organized agencies of 
the church. 

XL — Other Improvements. 

1. — The new Bethpage Church of the Crouse Pastorate has been 
completed, except for painting. The old furnishings have been 
moved into it and the congregation is using the main auditorium. 
This building was put up under the pastoral supervision of Rev. 
F. M. Speagle, who has since moved to Concord. It is a splendid 
building, and when fully finished, and new furniture is installed, 
it will be one of the best rural churches in that community. Re- 
port of this work was given at a former meeting of Synod. The 
work is now in the pastoral care of Rev. J. J. Bickley. 

2. — Daniels Lutheran Church has added a Sunday School annex 
to its house of worship, which provides them with splendid class 
rooms and other equipment for modern Sunday school work, as 
well as for other organized agencies of the congregation. A heat- 
ing plant has been installed for both the old building and the new, 
and an electric light system installed. The chancel of the main 
church also was rearranged, and improved. The cost of these im- 
provements was estimated to be approximately between nine and 
ten thousand dollars. Pastor W. H. Roof and his congregation now 
have a splendid church plant for efficient service. 

3. — Rev. A. R. Beck, D.D., and his Beth Eden congregation in 
Newton will soon have their new church completed. This will be 
one of our best churches when finished. It is modern in its ar- 
rangement, and yet churchly and lends itself to the spirit of wor- 
shipfulness. It will be equipped with rooms for Sunday school 
and other organized activities of the church, furnished with pipe 
organ, modern heating plant, and supplied with all necessary 



22 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



furnishings for church services. Report of this work was given 
last year. 

4. — Mt. Moriah congregation of Rowan county is building a mod- 
ern new brick church, which will be easily numbered among our 
best churches of the Synod. It will have a full size basement, with 
Sunday School equipment, furnace heat, electric lights, and will 
be furnished with the best of furniture throughout. It would be 
hard to arrive at the exact cost of the building at this stage of 
its construction, as it is being done by day labor and in which quite 
a lot of local help is employed. However, it is safe to estimate 
that if the job had been let to contract, it would have cost from 
twenty to twenty-five thousand dollars. Rev. Enoch Hite and his 
congregation have merited the praise of the community for the 
success with which they have carried on their building program. 

5. — St. Mark's Lutheran Church of Mooresville is building a 
modern new parsonage in which soon to move their pastor, the 
Rev. C. A. Phillips. This will be arranged with a view to con- 
venience and so designed as to meet the needs of the pastor of a 
church. 

6. — Old historic Organ Church is soon to have a Sunday school 
building, built of the same kind of stone as that of the church, and 
arranged for class work, with furnace heating plant which will 
heat it and the church also. There will be a full basement under 
the new building, which will be used for general gatherings of the 
congregations and for class work if needed. Rev. P. L. Miller, the 
pastor, and his congregation are making splendid headway since 
the whole time of the pastor is given to that one congregation. 

7. — Friedens congregation has built eight Sunday school rooms 
to their church, at a cost of approximately $5,000.00, which adds 
very much to the plant for Sunday school and other organized 
activities of the church. Pastor G. W. McClanahan and his people 
here are making commendable headway in their work. 

XII. — Pension Fund. 

The desired $4,000,000.00 for pensions for aged ministers and 
their dependent families has been more than raised by the United 
Lutheran Church, for which we all greatly rejoice. It is a matter 
of deep regret, however, that our Synod did not quite raise her 
full quota for that fund. The amount pledged by our Synod is 
about $85,000.00. Many of the congregations did nobly in this 
matter, and we greatly appreciate their fine services, while some 
did not seem to get into the spirit of the matter as well as they 
should have. We are deeply grateful to our General Chairman, 
Mr. J. L. Fisher, and his corps of managers, Messrs. J. C. Sigmon, 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 23 



H. E. Isenhour, W. A. Ridenhour, A. R. Rhyne, W. L. Kinney, 
K. B. Patterson, and Revs. E. A. Shenk, P. D. Risinger and E. H. 
Kohn, D.D., also Dr. W. T. Whitsett who furnished valuable infor- 
mation for both our local Synod and for the United Lutheran 
Church, bearing on this subject, and all others who assisted in this 
work, for the fine services which they gave us in this undertaking. 

XIII. — Conferences. 

Regular meetings of all three of the Conferences were held dur- 
ing the year, and the same were well attended and marked by 
good and helpful programs on practical subjects. In keeping 
with the provisions of Synod, noted on page 128 of last year's 
minutes, ordination services were arranged for at the meeting of 
the Southern Conference in Daniels Lutheran Church on May the 
24th, 1928, when Messrs. L. C. Bumgarner, R. L. Fisher, J. D. 
Sheppard, and A. K. Yount were ordained to the Gospel Ministry. 
The sermon for the occasion was preached by Rev. V. Y. Boozer, 
D.D., and the service was conducted by Rev. E. F. K. Roof. The 
President of Synod with the assistance of Rev. J. C. Dietz, Secre- 
tary, and Rev. E. H. Kohn, D.D., the Statistical Secretary, con- 
ducted the ordination. A large number of the pastors from all over 
the Synod were present for the service, in addition to the Confer- 
ence as a whole. 

The Presidents of the respective Conferences are: 

Rev. P. D. Risinger, Troutman, N. C, Western Conference. 
Rev. E. H. Kohn, D.D., Ph.D., Mt. Holly, N. C, Southern 

Conference. 
Rev. S. W. Hahn, Winston-Salem, N. C, Eastern Conference. 

XIV. — Loan and Gift Fund. 

We are delighted to be able to report that the Loan and Gift 
Fund which the Brotherhood of Synod has been working on for 
some time has been fully subscribed. The Synod will be grateful 
to the men of the Church who made possible this fund, and hopes 
that it will prove a great blessing for the advancement of the 
cause of missions in our state. 

XV. — Called Meeting of Synod. 

A special meeting of this Synod was held in St. John's Lutheran 
Church, Salisbury, N. C, on October the 30th, 1928. This meeting 
was called by authorization of the Executive Committee of Synod, 
upon the request of the Board of Educational Institutions, for the 



24 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



purpose of arranging for a larger financial support of Lenoir 
Rhyne College and the Collegiate Institute, and also to consider 
and act upon apportionments for the year 1929. A full record 
of the proceedings of this meeting will be found in the minutes 
for the same, which should be printed along with the minutes of 
the annual convention. 

XVI. — Miscellaneous Items. 

1. — The second Lutheran World Convention is scheduled to be 
held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1929. A quota of ten delegates 
has been assigned to the United Lutheran Church in America 
for that meeting. We are sure that this Synod appreciates most 
deeply this evidence of international unity in our beloved Lu- 
theran Church. 

2. — The year 1929 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the 
publication of Luther's Catechism, which should inspire our pas- 
tors and people to a greater use of that precious little book, in 
indoctrinating our children in the principles of the Christian faith. 

3. — As noted in the beginning of this report, we are meeting 
this year in the one hundred and twenty-fifth annual convention 
as an organized Lutheran Synod of North Carolina. In reality, 
the Synod was organized one hundred and twenty-six years ago, 
as the records will show; the seeming discrepancy as to years 
is accounted for on the ground that on two separate calendar years 
there was no convention of Synod. However, the thought in our 
minds should be, that having been organized for a century and a 
quarter as a Christian Body, we ought to feel inspired to bestir 
ourselves to greater accomplishments in the work of soul saving 
and building up the Kingdom of Christ, than ever we have done 
in the past. 

4. — Again we call your attention to the recommendation of the 
United Lutheran Church, which calls for all of us, pastors and 
people, to give special attention to evangelistic work, and to try 
to add at least one-tenth to the communing membership of our 
churches this year, and a like increase the following year also. 

5. — We desire, likewise, to urge our people to do all they can 
to encourage the spirit of more liberal giving for the financial 
support of the Church. This too is urged by the United Lutheran 
Church, and especially so for the every member canvass season. 
Especially do we need more funds with which to promote our own 
growth and expansion as a Synod. The Home Mission work of our 
Synod needs to be taken more seriously than it has hitherto been. 
We need to visualize our opportunities, and then measure up to 
their challenges to us as a Synod. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 25 



XVII. — Conclusion. 

The greater number of matters with which your President has 
had to deal during the synodical year, have been handled through 
committees, such as the Executive Committee, the Mission Com- 
mittee, the Ministerial Committee, and a number of other standing 
committees, and will appear under those reports, and hence will 
not be included in this report. In closing, allow me again to ex- 
press my sincere thanks to the entire Synod, and especially the 
committees with which we worked, for the uniform and courteous 
cooperation which has been shown me in the many and varied 
duties which we have had to perform. Like that of any other 
going concern, the work of the office of synodical president grows 
heavier and more exacting each year, however, with your help and 
sympathies and by the assurances of God's abiding presence and 
support, it has been pleasant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. MORGAN, President. 

Report of Committee on President s Report 

Your committee on President's report has read with much inter- 
est the report submitted by the President upon the varied activi- 
ties of Synod during the synodical year 1928. We find much in 
this report that should call forth the hearty commendation of 
Synod for the excellent and painstaking care of the President in 
the performance of duties imposed upon him as President. Your 
committee wishes to summarize this report under four heads. 

1. — General Outlook. 

The general outlook of the work of Synod is in the main en- 
couraging. While there has been no outstanding accomplishment 
during the year, yet there has been a decided, persistent forward 
movement to meet the demands of our Church in this rapidly mov- 
ing age. 

We note with gratification the absence of much restlessness on 
the part of both the ministry and the congregations, and hence 
little change is noted during the year within the Synod. 

Notwithstanding the slowness of congregations in sending in 
moneys on apportionment, the report shows more money raised 
this year than last. 

Few, if any, of our congregations have been destitute of the 
Means of Grace, having either regular services or a supply. 

Our Educational Institutions have been going forward at a com- 



26 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



mendable pace, and with much promise of greater activity in the 
future. 

But one death among the ministry has been reported. Our 
beloved Father in Israel, Rev. Geo. H. Cox, D.D., having passed 
into life during the year. Quite a number of young men are offer- 
ing themselves for the ministry and are entering seriously upon 
the work of preparation for this high calling. 

2. — Ministerial Relationships. 

Under the head of ministerial relationships, we mean those acts 
which come officially under the care and oversight of the President 
in the administration of the Means of Grace through regularly 
ordained and organized channels of service. Under this head the 
President notes Calls, Supplies, Installations, Resignations, Dis- 
missals. 

While a number of changes have been recorded within the Synod 
during the year,' several having come to us from sister Synods, 
yet in reality we have lost but one pastor to another synod whose 
name was not mentioned in previous report. 

In this connection we note that Theological Students J. F. Davis, 
A. W. Lippard, S. L. Sox, A. K. Hewitt, have received calls within 
the bounds of this Synod. 

3. — Church Building and Improvements. 

Under the heading noted by our President as Cornerstone Lay- 
ings, Dedications, Opening of New Churches, and other Improve- 
ments, we note that a magnificent forward step has been taken. 
Many congregations have built, or are building new churches. 
Many more have repaired, added to, or are now repairing or add- 
ing to their present equipment. Many thousands of dollars have 
been spent during the year for adequate church and Sunday school 
equipment, without which efficient service can hardly be expected. 
For this our congregations are to be heartily commended. 

4. — Miscellaneous. 

Under this head we call your attention to the completion of the 
$4,000,000 Ministerial Pension Fund, though with regret the Pres- 
ident reports that our Synod did not raise her allotted amount. 

It is a matter of much rejoicing that the Loan and Gift Fund 
sponsored by the Brotherhood of our Synod has been pushed to its 
completion, which is to be mentioned in another report. 

The President memorializes Synod in regard to the Called Meet- 
ing of Synod held in St. John's Lutheran Church, Salisbury, N. C, 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 27 



Oct. 30th, 1928. A full record of the proceedings of this meeting 
will be found in the minutes now in the hands of the Secretary 
of Synod. We recommend that this record be printed along with 
the minutes of this convention of Synod. 

Under this same head we desire to call Synod's attention to items 
1, 2, and 3 in President's report, and recommend that they be re- 
ceived as matters of general information. 

Also that items 4 and 5 listed in this report be open for dis- 
cussion and that Synod take such action as may be necessary for 
the carrying out of these suggestions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

REV. V. C. RIDENHOUR, 

REV. C. P. FISHER, 

A. C. CLINE, 

L. A. KISER, 

REV. F. B. LINGLE.

Auditors Report 

The Auditing Committee wishes to make the following report: 
We have gone over the records of Mr. Heilig very carefully 
and to the best of our knowledge and belief, everything is correct. 
We find that he keeps his books neat, and that it is easy for any- 
one to ascertain the standing of his accounts. We did not go 
into the detailed checking of the remittances received by the Treas- 
urer, but each congregation can readily compare its record with the 
records found in the Bulletin and see whether or not it is credited 
with the amounts its record shows. It may be that there are some 
clerical errors but if so the Treasurer will be glad to make the 
necessary corrections. 

Your committee wishes to make the following recommendation 
to the Synod for its consideration; That the Synod appropriate a 
small amount sufficient to pay an expert accountant to audit the 
Treasurer's books each year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. W. ISENHOUR, 
FRED R. SHEPHERD, 
REV. L. E. BLACKWELDER. 

The Report of the Auditing Committee was received for con- 
sideration. 

A motion prevailed instructing the Executive Committee to put 
into effect the constitutional provision for bonding the Synodical 
Treasurer. 

After considerable discussion as to the desirability and feasi- 
bility of a system of bookkeeping for Synod and congregations that 
would make it possible for a public accountant to accurately audit 
the Treasurer's books, a motion was passed instructing the Pres- 
ident to appoint a Special Committee to study this matter and 
offer a solution during this Convention in the form of a resolu- 
tion. The President appointed on this committee B. Capps, G. F. 
McAllister, and A. L. Starr. 

The Report of the Auditing Committee was adopted. 

Report oi Special Committee 

We, your Special Committee, appointed to formulate a plan for 
the Auditing Committee provided for by Synod, recommend the 
following : 

That the Auditing Committee, as soon as practical after this 
Convention of Synod, engage a competent Accountant, preferably 
a member of the Lutheran Church, to audit the Treasurer's Books; 
and that the Auditing Committee together with the Accountant, 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 53 



work out a system of remittance records which will enable the 
Auditing Committee at all times to check the accuracy of all 
accounts. That the system as soon as prepared be submitted to 
the Executive Committee of Synod for approval. 

B. CAPPS, 
G. F. MCALLISTER. 

The Report was adopted. 



Secretary's Report 



Four hundred copies of the Bulletin and four thousand copies 
of the Minutes of the Winston-Salem Convention of the North 
Carolina Synod were printed and distributed at a cost of $943.81. 
The work of printing and distributing was done by The Farrell 
Printing Co., of Columbia, S. C. The same printers have the 
contract for the printing of Bulletin and Minutes of this conven- 
tion on the same terms as for last year. 

I hereby submit a certified copy of the Minutes of the One Hun- 
dred and Twenty-Fourth Convention of the United Evangelical 
Lutheran Synod of North Carolina, and recommend that it be 
placed in the Archives of Synod as the Protocol of said Convention. 

J. C. DIETZ, Secretary. 

The Report was adopted. 



Report of Statistical Secretary 

The Blank forms on "State of the Church" and "Parochial Re- 
ports" were sent out in December to the number of 625 to the pas- 
tors, and secretarys of vacant congregations. 

These have been filled out and returned except where vacancies 
exist. The pastors should send in finished reports promptly, so 
that enough time can be given to assemble the totals in such man- 
ner as to make them concrete. A summary of the more important 
columns of the Parochial Reports is given as follows: 

Baptized Members — 34,418; Confirmed Members — 24,572; Com- 
muning Members — 18,504; Baptisms — 890; Confirmations — 786; 
Church Papers received, presumably the Lutheran, 1229; Officers, 
Teachers and Pupils in Sunday School, 24,985; Students in Col- 
lege, 483. 

Value of Church Property, $2,802,082; total value of buildings 
and endowment, $3,686,233; total current expense, $442,177; paid 



54 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



on Apportionment, $44,402; total amounts gathered for all pur- 
poses, $574,622. 

An analysis of Parochial Reports show some interesting facts, 
concerning baptisms, students at Lenoir Rhyne and other insti- 
tutions. 

The Sacrament of Baptism was administered in 1928. to 889 chil- 
dren as against 872 in 1927. Of the 889, 451 came from our 
rural congregations, and 438 in the urban congregations. The 
bulk of the membership of Synod lies in the country, 12,795 ap- 
proximately, as against 10,757 in the city, approximately, from 
which summary it is found the rural congregations predominate. 

From the reports these facts are gleaned: Those congregations 
having students in institutions of higher learning, have them di- 
vided as follows: Lenoir Rhyne 185, and in schools non-Lutheran 
277; Lenoir Rhyne getting only 33% of those who should be found 
within her walls. These students are furnished by less than 135 
congregations as the reports of 1928 show. Let us view the edu- 
cational question from another angle. Of the students attending 
Lenoir Rhyne it is found that 109 students come from the urban 
congregations and 74 from the rural; and those attending other 
institutions the urban congregations furnish 205 students and the 
rural 67. But the condition is improving, for 1927 our congrega- 
tions sent 401 students to college — Lenoir Rhyne receiving 165, 
and other institutions 236. In 1928 the figures are: Lenoir Rhyne 
183, other institutions 236, other institutions no gain, Lenoir 
Rhyne gained 18. The State institutions offer advantages which 
other schools cannot meet, and competition is sharp and lines are 
clearly drawn. 

There is a tightening down of all statistical gathering agencies 
for accuracy, so our pastors are requested to acquire now, the habit 
of accuracy in filling out reports, and not to rely upon a "sup- 
posed correctness" as to the contents of their report. Synodical 
and governmental requirements now are such as to cause the gath- 
ering of statistics that are absolutely reliable and up-to-date. 

E. H. KOHN, Statistical Secretary. 

The Report was adopted. 



Report of the Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee of the United Evangelical Lutheran 
Synod of North Carolina held four meetings during the past year, 
March 29, 1928, July 27, 1928, October 5, 1928, and January 3, 1929. 

The actions of the committee are herewith submitted for your 
consideration. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 55 



I. Mr. Avery R. Rhyne, elected at Winston-Salem Convention 
to membership on the Board of Trustees for Lutheran Southern 
Seminary, declined to serve, and Prof. M. S. Beam was elected 
to fill this vacancy. 

II. Upon the recommendation of President Morgan and of the 
Examining Committee of Synod the following ministers were re- 
ceived by letters of transfer and their names placed on the Cler- 
ical Roll of Synod: 

Rev. Enoch Hite from the South Carolina Synod. 

Rev. L. S. Miller from the Synod of Ohio. 

Rev. J. J. Bickley from the South Carolina Synod. 

III. Rev. C. P. Harry, Secretary of University Student Work 
of the United Lutheran Church, offered a plan by which our Lu- 
theran interests at the State University might be cared for. The 
plan was approved, and the matter was referred to the following 
committee with power to iact: Revs. J. L. Morgan, J. C. Dietz, 
B. S. Brown, Jr., and Mr. J. L. Fisher. 

IV. The Treasurer of Synod was instructed to send a check 
to the U. L. C. Publication House covering subscriptions to the 
Daily Lutheran for each pastor of Synod during the U. L. C. Con- 
vention at Erie, Pa. 

V. A committee was appointed to replace the President's old car 
with a new one. A new Dodge car was bought, the exchange price 
being $1,000.00. 

VI. A list of Applicants for Beneficiary Aid, approved by the 
Committee on Beneficiary Education, was submitted to the Execu- 
tive Committee for consideration. The committee approved the en- 
tire list of applicants together with the amounts asked for, and the 
Treasurer of Synod was instructed to apply the $50.00 received 
from the Southern District of the Lutheran Brotherhood to Sem- 
inary Student A. K. Huitt, thus supplementing aid already granted. 
(See Report of Committee on Beneficiary Education) 

VII. President J. L. Morgan and Hon. B. Capps were instructed 
to hold a conference with Secretary Black of the Laymen's Move- 
ment with a view to harmonizing appropriations to beneficiary 
students and adopting a uniform policy for the future. 

VIII. The date for the next Convention of Synod was fixed for 
February 4, 1929, beginning at 7:30 P.M. 

IX. The Treasurer was authorized to pay expenses of delegates 
to the Erie Convention of the United Lutheran Church to the ex- 
tent of $4.00 per day including the time required to go and return. 

X. A Synodical Program and a Provisional Order of Business 
were adopted. 

XL President J. L. Morgan reported the following: "Rev. W. 9 



56 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



P. Koller, D.D., Executive Secretary of the Board of Foreign Mis- 
sions, has requested each synod to create a Standing Committee 
on Foreign Missions, with whom he may cooperate in carrying out 
that work. Pending the action of this committee on the proposi- 
tion, I have appointed Rev. E. A. Shenk as Chairman of such com- 
mittee, but I have not named other members of the same. The 
request is to have a man from each Conference on such a com- 
mittee. I recommend that this committee authorize or recommend 
that Synod create such a committee." 

The President's action and recommendation were approved. 

XII. President Morgan reported: "The United Lutheran 
Church has designated Epiphany Season as the time to present 
the cause of Foreign Missions, and especially to try to secure funds 
to pay off the debt of that Board. I have been asked to write 
our pastors to give this matter consideration. Will this com- 
mittee so approve?" 

The Executive Committee approved the above plan and request. 

XIII. By motion duly passed the President's action in appoint- 
ing Rev. M. L. Stirewalt, D.D., as the delegated representative of 
this Synod at the inauguration of the Rev. L. F. Gruber, D.D., 
LL.D., the newly elected President of the Chicago Seminary, was 
approved. The inauguration took place December 11, 1928. 

XIV. The Executive Committee recommends to Synod that it 
approve a Budget of $31,000 for the United Evangelical Lutheran 
Synod of North Carolina plus the United Lutheran Church's ap- 
portionment to this Synod for the year 1930, and that the basis 
or method of dividing the same out to the congregations be left 
to the Executive Committee to be worked out by them upon such 
fair and equitable basis as may seem proper. 

XV. Apportionment Tables for 1929 were adopted. (See Bul- 
letin)

Church was adopted:

XVII. The Executive Committee recommends the following 
Financial Plan for the year 1930: 

1. — That in the "Roll of Pastorates and Lay Delegates", the Pas-

seem advisable. This committee shall report back to the Execu- 
tive Committee, and upon approval and adoption by the Execu- 
tive Committee, the apportionment shall become effective. 

3. — That a Stewardship Committee from each Conference be ap- 
pointed annually by the President of Synod, in lieu of the pres- 
ent Finance Committee of Synod, whose duty it shall be to 
assist in putting on the Every Member Canvass in the several 
congregations of the conference, and to stimulate interest in 
the full payment of the apportionment. 

4. — That the Brotherhood be asked to give its full cooperation in 
the carrying out of this program. 

XVIII. The following report of the North Carolina Lutheran 
was adopted and is submitted as information: 

Report of the Committee on North Carolina Lutheran 

The committee has been able to complete the sixth successive 
year of the existence of the North Carolina Lutheran without fail- 
ure or interruption of any issue. It is the conviction of your com- 
mittee that the standard of the paper has been well maintained, 
and its usefulness well proven; but from a financial point of view 
it made the poorest showing this last year of any year of its 
existence. Several contributory causes, which we need not here 
mention, have produced the deficit in the accounts for the year, 
as the report will show. We have charged off to "non-collection" 
$39.36, preferring to do so rather than to carry dead accounts on 
the books. These accounts (like former accounts to the amount 
of $71.20 likewise charged off) are against congregations where 
the paper was placed in every home and the paper was sent for 
one whole year without receiving any payment. A number of 
single subscriptions, approximating $10.00, have likewise not been 
received, which are not included in the report. The circulation 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 59 



remained about the same as for the previous year, running from 
about 2,150 to 2,350 copies per month. 

We herewith submit the financial report for the year 1928, as 
follows :

XIX. The Executive Committee passed the following resolu- 
tion February 4, 1929: 

Whereas, there is no opportunity for conference with regard to 
the institutions of the Church on the territory of the Virginia, 



60 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Mississippi 
Synods: and 

Whereas, there is therefore no coordination in the support of 
the said institutions and no concerted plans for their development: 

Therefore, be it Resolved by the Executive Committee of the 
United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina: 

1. — That the said Executive Committee recommends to the Synod 
that it invite a conference of the Presidents of the Synods 
aforementioned with a view to evolving a coordinated and sys- 
tematic plan for the support and development of the said in- 
stitutions: 

2. — That the said conference call in representatives of the said 
institutions for such information and counsel as it may deem 
fit; 

3. — That the Secretary of this Committee forthwith have sent to 
the Presidents of the Synods, aforementioned, a copy of these 
Resolutions. 

XX. The following proposition from the Yadkin Hospital Com- 
pany has been received and considered by the Executive Committee. 
The Executive Committee passes this proposition up to Synod 
with the following information and recommendation : The Execu- 
tive Committee looks with favor upon the offer of the Yadkin 
Hospital Company looking toward Synod taking over said hospital 
property as outlined in the proposal of the said Yadkin Hospital 
Company, and recommends that Synod take such action as it may 
deem proper in the premises. 

The proposition is as follows: 

Memorandum of Proposal of Yadkin Hospital Company to 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 

Whereas, the Yadkin Hospital Company, of Albemarle, N. C, is 
now operating a hospital at Albemarle, N. C, the said hospital 
being a private corporation; and, whereas, the incorporators desire 
that the funds provided by the Duke Foundation shall be available 
for said hospital ; and, whereas, further, said funds are not avail- 
able to a hospital operated as a private hospital or corporation, 
but said funds would be available if operated by the Evangelical 
Lutheran Synod or other like organization: 

Now, therefore, the Yadkin Hospital makes the following sug- 
gestions for the consideration of the Synod: 

It will turn over to the Synod its hospital building, equipment, 
etc., with about three acres of land located just outside the cor- 
porate limits of the town of Albemarle, together with all stock 
in said corporation, upon the following conditions, to wit: 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 61 



(a) That funds be obtained from the Duke Foundation to an 
amount to be terminated according to the rules and regulations 
of said Foundation. 

(b) That out of said funds a debt of approximately $26,000.00, 
evidenced by certain notes of certain of the incorporators, the 
money on which went into said hospital, be liquidated. 

(c) That the balance of said funds derived from the Duke Foun- 
dation be used in the completion of the said hospital and in further 
equipping same; and 

(d) That the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 
put up an amount necessary to the proper completion of said build- 
ing and equipping said hospital over and above the amount received 
from the Duke Foundation and used for said purpose. 

(e) That the management and control and ownership of the 
said hospital shall then be vested in the Evangelical Lutheran 
Synod of North Carolina, or its properly authorized officers, and 
the said Synod to be entitled to all the funds received through the 
Duke Foundation for the purpose of operating said hospital. 

(f) That the staff of physicians and surgeons of said hospital 
shall be ethical and shall belong to the county and state medical 
association. 

The foregoing suggestions are made for the purpose of calling 
this matter to the attention of the Synod, and if the Synod sees 
fit to take favorable action thereon, the Yadkin Hospital stands 
ready, through its proper officers, to negotiate further along the 
lines suggested. 

This the 4th day of February, 1929. 

This Report was received and referred to the Committee on 
Executive Committee's Report.

Report of Committee on Ministerial Education 

Your Committee on Ministerial Education met on September the 
29th, 1928, and interviewed a number of students who had applied 
for aid in their school work this year. In addition to this meeting 
a number of conferences were held, and letters exchanged, with 
students who desire aid in preparation for ministerial work. The 
following students have been approved by your committee for bene- 
ficiary aid during this school year, and are receiving help accord- 
ing to the schedule here given: 

1. — Students in the Southern Seminary: A. L. Hahn, D. L. Heglar, 
A. K. Hewitt, C. F. Kyles, A. W. Lippard, S. L. Sox, J. E. 
Walker, J. L. Cauble, J. W. Iddings, R. H. Kepley, R. B. Setzer, 
G. S. Eckard, M. R. Farris, P. G. Kinney, and W. A. Sigmon. 
These each receive aid to the amount of $200, except Mr. Hahn, 
who received $25 from Synod and an additional amount from 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 63 



the Laymen's Movement. Other students who receive aid from 
the Laymen's Movement are, Messrs. Hewitt, Lippard, Seaboch, 
Cauble, and Iddings. Mr. F. P. Cauble is not asking for aid. 

2. — Students in Lenoir Rhyne College: G. L. Barger, O. G. Swice- 
good, R. L. Swicegood, Olin W. Sink, Emily Sigmon, Emma 
Lee Cathey, C. L. Shipton and D. F. Swicegood. These each 
receive $150, except Miss Sigmon who asks for one-half her 
tuition, which is $60. 

3. — Collegiate Institute: M. D. Norris is the only beneficiary in 
this school this year, and receives $150. 

4. — School of Medicine : Gladys Morgan is in the State University 
at Chapel Hill, studying medicine with a view to becoming a 
medical missionary, and has asked for $200 for that purpose. 

There are other students in our schools who plan to give them- 
selves to the specific work of the Church, either as ministers or 
missionaries, but we do not have a correct list of such at this time. 

It is the opinion of your committee that young men who con- 
template studying for the ministry should be encouraged to do all 
they can, by self help or otherwise, to pay their own way in school, 
at least in the lower classes in college. There are two special 
reasons for this suggestion here: First, the Synod is limited in 
funds for this line of work, and needs to conserve whenever pos- 
sible. And in the second place, we are of the opinion that students 
should have time definitely to test themselves out as to whether 
they are truly and definitely persuaded that they should enter into 
this profession, before calling on the Synod to aid them. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. MORGAN, Chairman. 

During consideration of this Report the following actions were 

taken : 

1. — A motion prevailed that the Committee on Ministerial Educa- 
tion be charged with the duty of conferring with all young 
men who offer themselves as students in preparation for the 
Lutheran ministry, and of advising with them and directing 
them in their work. When a young man is approved by this 
Committee, his name shall be placed upon the Synod's Roll of 
Candidates for the Ministry. 

2. — Resolved, that beneficiary aid granted by Synod to candidates 
for the ministry be granted for the payment of legitimate 
school expenses, such as tuition, room rent, board, books, etc., 
and that checks for same be sent to the Treasurer of Lenoir 
Rhyne College or the Collegiate Institute as the case may be, 
and credited to the accounts of the Beneficiary concerned. 
The Report was adopted.

Tuesday, February 5, 1929, 2 P.M. 
Devotions were conducted by Rev. H. A. Trexler. 



Report oi Mission Committee 

Your Committee on Missions hereby submits its report for the 
year 1928 as follows: 

A. — Meetings. 

The committee is composed of the President of Synod, who is 
"ex officio" chairman, together with Rev. H. P. Wyrick, Rev. S. W. 
Hahn, Hon. J. C. Sigmon, and Mr. P. M. Barger. Rev. Wyrick 
is secretary of the committee. Rev. A. D. R. Hancher, D.D., Super- 
intendent of Missions for the United Lutheran Church, usually 
meets with the committee and advises in matters which relate 
to the work of the Board of American Missions. At the first meet- 
ing the following matters were attended to: 

1. — In view of the newly organized work at North Kannapolis, it 
was agreed to arrange for a student to be in charge of the 
work in Belmont, his salary to be paid by the Gaston County 
Ministers' Association congregations and the Board of Amer- 
ican Missions, in order to enable the field missionary, Rev. E. 
C. Cooper, Ph.D., to devote his time during June, July and 
August to the work in North Kannapolis and other missions. 
Likewise, arrangements were made for a student to assist in 
supplying at North Kannapolis during the same months, the sal- 
ary for the same being provided by the congregations compos- 
ing the Rowan County Ministers Association. 

2. — Provision was made for the Field Missionary to have charge 
of the vacant mission in Hendersonville during the greater part 
of the summer months, however, arrangements were later ef- 
fected according to which a student was in charge here during 
vacation period. 

3. — Arrangements were made for supply pastors at Randolph, 
Hildebran, and such other missions as may not have full time 
pastors, at any time during the year. 

At the second meeting, which Dr. Hancher was unable to attend, 
the following items were acted on : 

1. — Application by the mission in Rocky Mount for a renewal of 
a loan of $5,000.00 from the Board of American Missions for 
three years without interest was approved. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 65 



2. — Arrangements were made for the mission at North Kannapolis 
to be supplied jointly by the Field Missionary and students 
from the Seminary during the winter months, and for students 
to supply at Belmont on Sundays when the Field Missionary 
would be at Kannapolis. The extra amount of finances for 
this arrangement is being supplied by the missions themselves. 

3. — Favorable action was taken upon the application from the 
churches at Hildebran and Startown to be constituted a mis- 
sion, instead of the former arrangement for the Burke pas- 
torate. 

At the third meeting, the committee considered with Superin- 
tendent Hancher the applications for aid on salary for all missions 
for the year 1929, a schedule of which as recommended by the 
committee will be found under C of this report. Also, an appli- 
cation for aid from the Women's Board of the United Lutheran 
Church for a new church for Holy Communion congregation to be 
built at Foscoe, Watauga county, was approved. 

B. — General Survey. 

Andrews: — This mission is served by Rev. W. H. Lefstead, pastor, 
and Miss Nellie Park, parish helper. The work is progressing 
encouragingly, and the congregation is very much encouraged since 
they have their new church, with its splendid equipment for organ- 
ized services. A mission Sunday school is being conducted in the 
country several miles out from the town of Andrews, which gives 
promise of larger developments in the near future. 

Asheville:- — Rev. E. R. Lineberger is pastor of this mission, 
which has recently purchased a lot for a church, at a cost of a 
little over $20,000.00. The lot is on a corner, in a splendid resi- 
dential section of the city, and is plenty large enough for both 
church and parsonage. The congregation borrowed $5,000.00 from 
the Board of American Missions, which, added to a like amount 
which it had in hand, enabled them to pay for one-half of the cost 
of the lot, and the other half is to be paid in three equal annual 
installments. The Women's Missionary Society of our Synod has 
contributed towards this purchase, and will continue to help in 
the undertaking of a church building. There is no question but 
that Asheville affords splendid opportunity for a growing church, 
if once we get the work far enough along to command the follow- 
ing of Lutheran people and friends who move to that city to live. 

Bessemer: — Rev. N. D. Yount is pastor of this mission. The 
church in Bessemer is paying for its parsonage which was built 
two years ago, and should soon be in a position to make further 



66 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

headway in its local obligations. A church home is the need of 
the congregation in Shelby, and every effort should be made to help 
them to secure such a home in the near future. They have had 
to worship in a public school building and other improvised places 
until it is becoming disheartening for both pastor and people, and 
we ought not leave them to have to continue longer under such 
handicaps. 

Belmont: — This mission is under the supervision of the western 
field missionary, Dr. E. C. Cooper, and has for the past year en- 
joyed noticeable increase in attendance at both the Sunday school 
and the preaching services. Enlarged facilities have been effected 
for school work, and growing interest has been manifested. Stu- 
dent J. E. Walker supplied this mission last summer. 

Burke: — In keeping with the action of the Western Conference, 
in September, St. Paul's Church at Startown has been associated 
with this pastorate, and efforts are being made to secure a pastor 
as soon as practicable, when it is hoped this work will develop 
nicely. Students from Lenoir Rhyne College have been conducting 
Sunday school for the church in Morganton, with encouraging suc- 
cess as to both numbers and interest manifested. 

Charlotte: — Rev. John L. Morgan is pastor of this mission. The 
congregation is carrying considerable debt on its parsonage, which 
it is paying off through the Building and Loan system, and when 
through with that obligation should be in position to become self- 
sustaining. There is a large field for growth here. 

Durham: — Rev. J. L. Thornburg is pastor of this mission. The 
first unit of their new church plant is under construction and well 
on the way towards completion. Only the Sunday school part of 
the building will be put up at this time. The building is of stone, 
and makes a splendid appearance. We are not able to say at this 
stage of the work what this part of the plant will cost, however 
it will cost considerably less than it could have been built for a 
few years ago. The congregation and pastor are greatly encour- 
aged over the prospects of soon getting in a house of worship of 
their own, after spending so many years worshipping in the 
Y. M. C. A. rooms. 

Forsyth: — This mission has taken on new life under the leader- 
ship of Rev. W. J. Moretz, and gives promise of accomplishing a 
good work. A new parsonage is greatly needed, and it is hoped 
that arrangements can be worked out for building one soon. The 
congregations are taking more interest in synodical work than ever 
before. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 67 



Good Hope: — Good Hope congregations is steadily paying for its 
new Sunday school building, on the installment plan, and is growing 
in membership and usefulness in the community every year. The 
Bethel congregation is in serious need of a house of worship. The 
people are using the upstairs rooms of a hall, but it is hard to get 
the best interest or results under such circumstances. A small 
amount of help towards a chapel here now might prove to be a 
valuable investment in a few years. Rev. C. K. Wise is pastor 
of this mission. 

Granite Falls: — Rev. P. C. Sigmon is pastor of this work, which 
is enjoying steady growth and development. The church property 
in Granite Falls has been greatly improved and beautified, and the 
people are showing good interest in the work. There is still the 
need for a better church plant for St. John's congregation, which 
we hope will be built within another year or so. 

Hendersonville: — This mission has been without a regular pas- 
tor since June, when Rev. J. D. Mauney resigned and moved to 
St. Andrew's Church in Hickory. However, services have been 
conducted reasonably regularly by supply pastors and visiting min- 
isters since that time. Student John Futchs was there as supply 
during vacation period. Efforts are being made to secure a reg- 
ular pastor as soon as possible. The congregation has a splendid 
church, however, there are certain obligations against the congre- 
gation for furnishings, heating plant, street paving, etc., amount- 
ing in all to about nine or ten thousand dollars. This indebtedness 
has been somewhat discouraging to the congregation which is 
small in number. However, we hope in due time to see things 
in good shape for future developments. 

Lebanon: — Rev. E. F. Troutman is the pastor of this mission, 
and is accomplishing a good work here. The congregations have 
been steadily growing under his leadership, and the Lebanon con- 
gregation in particular has made commendable headway in finances, 
having voluntarily relieved the Board of paying $100 of the amount 
which had been appropriated for them on pastor's salary. 

Lenoir: — Rev. L. S. Miller is pastor of this church. The mission 
has a splendid opportunity for growth, and it is hoped that within 
a few years more at most it will become self-sustaining. Their 
church property is in good repair, and everything seems to be 
working harmoniously for fine success. The church out in the 
country is small, but is showing interest and will prove to be 
an asset to our work in that community. 

Monroe: — The churches in this mission have taken on new life 
under the management of Rev. J. D. Sheppard, and it is hoped 



68 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



that splendid results will follow their efforts in the near future. 
The churches are small in number, but the chances for growth 
seem encouraging. The church in Monroe has a debt of about 
$2,500.00 for a pipe organ, which was purchased several years ago, 
that is causing some extra efforts at this time, and which ought 
to be paid off so as to leave the congregation free to do other 
things. 

North Kannapolis: — This mission was organized last Summer, 
and has enjoyed splendid growth from its beginning, now number- 
ing over a hundred members. The work was started by the field 
missionary, Dr. E. C. Cooper, and during the vacation period was 
carried on largely by Student C. F. Kyles, and is still being cared 
for by the missionary and the students from the Seminary. The 
plan is to place a regular pastor here next Spring. Services are 
held in the public school building. It is hoped that a suitable lot 
can be secured soon for this mission. 

Raleigh:— Rev. E. R. McCauley, D.D., is pastor of this church, 
which is growing in numbers and is gradually paying off the debt 
on the parsonage, which when fully discharged should make it pos- 
sible for the congregation to take care of its pastor's salary with- 
out further aid from the Board. This congregation is helping to 
take care of our Lutheran students in the State College at Raleigh, 
which service should not be underestimated in its values in the 
lives of young men. 

Randolph : — This mission was without a regular pastor for more 
than a year, until Rev. Q. O. Lyerly began his pastoral work there 
the first of November. However, Student P. G. Kinney and others 
supplied these congregations most of the time. Plans are on the 
way for a new parsonage, and the outlook for growth in this pas- 
torate is hopeful. 

Rocky Mount: — This mission is under the care of the eastern 
field missionary, Rev. C. R. Ritchie. The membership of the 
church has had encouraging growth during the past year, and the 
Sunday school enrollment has about filled up to capacity the house 
in which services are held. The church debt is gradually being 
paid off, which will be a great relief to the congregation when 
finished. 

Thomasville: — This mission has made good progress this year, 
and has a bright future before it for continued growth. A new 
parsonage is needed, and the congregation is looking forward to 
such a project soon. The congregation is manifesting particularly 
fine interest in the causes of the Synod and the general work of 
the Church. Rev. G. O. Ritchie is pastor of this mission. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 69 



Watauga: — Rev. W. A. Deaton, D.D., is serving the original 
Watauga Pastorate, which is rural and in the mountain sections 
of the state. In order to do this work, a pastor has to encounter 
bad roads and brave severe weather conditions, often having to 
walk for miles through snow and ice in order to meet his preach- 
ing appointments. But the work is worthwhile and the services 
rendered are to be commended. It is the opinion of your com- 
mittee that Holy Trinity Church should be moved out on the state 
highway, so as to make it more easily reached and where it would 
seem possible to command a larger following in the community. 

Watauga, Boone: — Rev. J. A. Yount is pastor of this field, and 
Miss Cora Jeffcoat is parish helper. We are pleased to note here 
also the fact that Miss Alice Watkins has for a couple of years 
been giving her time in helping in this mission, which has been 
a valuable aid in the work. This field is also in the mountains 
and often calls for unusual efforts on the part of those in charge 
of the mission, in order to keep the work going. The new church 
in Boone, which was made possible by donations from the Women's 
Missionary Society of the United Lutheran Church, will soon be 
completed. It is built of brick, has a basement for Sunday school 
work, will be heated by a furnace, and will be fitted up with 
modern furnishings. It is hoped also to secure a parsonage for this 
mission, on the same lot with the church, if sufficient funds can 
be had for it. Owing to the fact that considerable time and labor 
from the people of the community is being counted on in this 
work, we can not say at this time what the work will cost all 
told when finished, however it will be considerably less than we 
had first been advised that it would be. It is hoped arrangements 
can be worked out this year by which to start work on a new 
church at Foscoe also, where a lot has been given for the purpose, 
and where Holy Communion will be located.

D. — Recommendations. 

1. — That Synod approve the official actions of this committee for 
the past year. 

2. — That in view of the great need for houses of worship, in places 
where for a number of years we have had organized congrega- 
tions, but where rented improvised rooms have had to be used 
for places of worship, especially at Asheville, Shelby, Durham, 
Brookford, and North Kannapolis, and also the State Uni- 
versity, that all congregations and Sunday schools be requested 
to make a special offering each year to take place on the first 
Sunday in October, or as soon thereafter as possible; and that 
the Mission Committee select a definite place each year for 
which the appeal should be made for the purpose of helping 
these missions to secure houses of worship as soon as prac- 
ticable. 

3. — That congregations of the Synod which, by reason of time and 
God's blessings upon them, have enjoyed growth and financial 
ability, which might enable them to assist new congregations, 
be encouraged to consider the commendable task of taking up 
some mission point and aiding it, either by lending it financial 
credit or by making donations to it for the purpose of helping 
it the sooner to secure a house of worship. 

4. — That prayerful and persistent efforts be made to raise the 
apportionments for Synod, so that funds may be had with 
which from year to year to aid mission congregations to pur- 
chase lots and build houses of worship. If the amount which 
is apportioned each year were raised in full, we could, with 
the assistance of loans from other sources, build one new 
church, or at least the first unit of it, each year. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 71 



In conclusion, your committee would hereby give expression to 
its appreciations for the loyalty and faithful services which have 
characterized the work of our pastors in the mission field, and for 
the help which has been given in this work by the women of our 
own Synod and of the United Lutheran Church, also for the as- 
sistance which has been given by the Luther League of this Synod 
and for the aid which the Synod as such has rendered, in the pur- 
chasing of church lots and helping to build houses of worship. 
Respectfully submitted for the committee, 

J. L. MORGAN, Chairman. 

This Report was considered by item. 

Recommendation 1 was adopted. 

Recommendation 2 was amended and adopted as amended. 

Recommendations 3 and 4 were adopted in turn. 

The Report was adopted as a whole. 

The Convention was led by Rev. W. A. Lutz in special prayer 
for the blessing of God and for the guidance of the Holy Spirit 
in the prosecution of our mission work. 



Upon recommendation of the Committee on Letters and Petitions, 
the petition of the new congregation of North Kannapolis for mem- 
bership in this Synod was granted, and the Secretary was in- 
structed to place the congregation on the Roll of Pastorates and 
Delegates. 



Report oi Committee on Women's Work 

We, your Committee on Women's Work, have met with the 
Women's Executive Committee from time to time, and have been 
graciously and cordially received by them. 

We have rendered them every assistance within our power. 
We find that they are always loyal to Synod and ever willing 
and ready to have any assistance or suggestion from Synod's rep- 
resentative. A representative from this body will be present at 
this meeting of our Synod and present greetings from their body 
to our Synod. 

Respectfully submitted, 

P. D. RISINGER, 
C. A. BROWN. 

This Report was adopted.

Mrs. J. F. Crigler, President and Special Representative of the 
State organization of the Women's Missionary Society, made a 
clear and forceful presentation of the work and main objectives 
of that organization. 



Report oi Committee on Brotherhoods 

After a review of the work of the Synodical Brotherhoods of 
our Church for the year 1928, we, your committee, wish to pre- 
sent the following report: 

1. — We note with gratification the commendable progress that is 
being made along the line of general activity on the part of 
the men of the Church. They seem to realize as perhaps never 
before that a wide field of usefulness lies open before them, 
and they show a genuine willingness to enter this field. 

2. — We note from reports that a number of congregations have 
organized new Brotherhoods during the year, and much zeal 
and earnestness has been manifested by these new organiza- 
tions. 

3. — We note that the most outstanding accomplishment during the 
year was the completion of the Campaign for the $100,000.00 
Loan and Gift Fund. Such portions of this fund as has been 
designated to become available during this synodical year. 

4. — We commend the work of the members of the Brotherhood 
for their active participation in the Every Member Canvass 
during the month of November last. 

5. — We wish to call Synod's attention to the Four-fold Objective 
during this synodical year, viz: 

a. To secure a largely increased attendance of men at the ser- 
vices of the Church. 

b. To restore the lapsed membership to active service in the 
Church. 

c. The winning of men, personal evangelism, face to face work. 

d. To develop the spiritual life and church loyalty of the boys. 

6. — The Brotherhood wishes to suggest to Synod that a more far- 
reaching and persistent method be adopted for keeping in touch 
with the members of our Church who change their places of 
residence from time to time. The Brotherhood notes with alarm 
that hundreds of members are lost to the Lutheran Church 
every year by an unwise retention of membership to the "Old- 
Family Burial-Ground". 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 73 



The Brotherhood believes that the Church could safely adopt this 
method, viz, that members changing their places of residence for 
six months or more should become members of the church of their 
faith nearest to which they reside, and that pastors should be 
instructed to send transfers to same. 

Respectfully submitted, 

V. C. RIDENHOUR, 
J. D. MAUNEY. 

This Report was adopted. 

Mr. H. E. Isenhour, Special Representative of the State Brother- 
hood, and President W. K. Mauney, spoke interestingly and en- 
couragingly of the work of the men of the Church. 



The following recommendations of the Steering Committee were 
adopted: 

1. — That 20 minutes be given to the Lenoir Rhyne Glee Club be- 
tween 3:00 and 3:30 Wednesday afternoon. 

2. — That 10 minutes be given to the Collegiate Institute following 
the report of the Committee on Church Institutions, for a floor 
exhibit of some of the work that it has done for the Church. 

3. — That the discussion upon the subject of Evangelism be made 
a Special Order for 12:00 M. Wednesday, and that 30 minutes 
be devoted to it. 



Report of Committee on Young Peoples Work 

Your Committee on Young People's Work submits the following: 

The Chairman attended only one meeting of the Executive Com- 
mittee during the year, but we note with pleasure the interest 
that the League has in our Synod and also of the United Lutheran 
Church. There are now 127 Leagues in the State, or 7 more than 
last year, with a membership of 2,478. 

Receipts from all sources for the year were $4,764.44. 

Mr. Samuel Sox, senior in the Lutheran Theological Seminary, 
was the field missionary for last year. His report shows that he 
visited more than 100 Leagues, which we think was very helpful 
in bringing information and inspiration to the Leagues. This 
feature of the work has been discontinued for the coming year. 

The Budget adopted by the League for the year is $4,800 to 
be divided as follows: 



74 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



St. Paul's, Durham $1,200 

Luther League Camp 100 

Southern Seminary 500 

South America 600 

Foreign Missionary 1,200 

Current Expenses 500 

Summer School 50 

National Dues 650 

Total $4,800 

In making this brief report of the Luther League in North 
Carolina, it is gratifying to note the interest manifested by the 
young people in the work of our Synod and of the United Lu- 
theran Church. We deeply appreciate the interest the young peo- 
ple have in our Church and the splendid financial aid that they 
are giving us in the advancement of the Master's kingdom. 

In view of a request by the National Luther League to organ- 
ize Junior Leagues in the State, the Executive Committee of the 
State League request that Synod express itself as to the advisa- 
bility of carrying out this request. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. P. FISHER, Chairman. 

This Report was received for consideration. 

Student F. P. Cauble, Special Representative of the State Lu- 
ther League, was listened to with much interest on the work of 
the Young People of the Synod. 

Synod adjourned pending consideration of this report. 

President J. L. Morgan led the Convention in prayer. 

Tuesday, February 5, 1929, 7:30 P.M. 

Vespers were conducted by Rev. E. A. Shenk, who also intro- 
duced the speakers for the evening. 

The audience listened with sustained interest to the delegated 
representatives of the various Boards of the United Lutheran 
Church. Rev. C. E. Hay, D.D., Rev. Henry Einspruch, D.D., and 
Rev. A. D. R. Hancher, D.D., spoke in the order given. 



Wednesday, February 6, 1929, 8:45 A.M. 

Matins were conducted by Rev. P. C. Sigmon. 

The Minutes were read, corrected, and approved as corrected. 

Synod resumed consideration of the Report of the Committee 
on Young People's Work. 

In answer to the request of the Executive Committee of the 
State Luther League for advice as to the organization of Junior 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 75 



Luther Leagues on the territory of the Synod, the following was 

adopted : 

The Synod would advise the Luther League not to press at 
this time the organization of Junior Leagues in churches where 
the successful operation of both Junior Leagues and Light Bri- 
gades is not practical, awaiting the coordination of the various 
interests involved in the United Lutheran Church of America 
by the Parish and Church School Board. 
The Report was adopted. 



Report of Committee on Sunday School Work 

Your Committee on Sunday School Work offer the following 
report : 

1. — By comparison of the official statistics of our Synod we 
find that in 1925, the year following the withdrawal of the Virginia 
Conference from the North Carolina Synod, that out of the 161 
remaining congregations of the Synod reporting a total baptized 
membership of 31,384 and a total enrollment of 21,895 confirmed 
members, that 132 Sunday Schools reported a total enrollment, in- 
cluding officers and teachers, of 24,963. Last year, just four years 
later, out of 160 congregations, reporting a baptized membership 
of 33,801, and a confirmed membership of 24,335, that 144 Sunday 
Schools reported a total of only 21,805 persons enrolled in Sunday 
School work. This means a loss in enrollment, during the last four 
years, of 13.5%, or a total of 3,158 persons. Whether the figures, 
as compiled in our statistical reports, are correct or not we do not 
attempt to say; but we do insist that the outside world is dependent 
upon facts as they appear there for its estimate of us. And, 
Mr. President and members of the Synod, it appears to your com- 
mittee that such figures indicate the fact that our educational 
program in the Sunday School is not reaching the masses of the 
people as it should. Some of us are evidently not accomplishing 
all that might be expected of us ; therefore it behooves us to search 
diligently for the Why. 

We rejoice, however, to share with you the belief that progress 
is being made in many lines, and really many congregations are 
showing splendid advancement. Such fact is evidenced by their 
increasing interest in Leadership Training, better organization, 
standardization of work, the gradual improvement of facilities for 
doing Sunday school class work effectively, etc. Your Committee 
desires to commend those pastors and congregations giving serious 
attention to this phase of their development program. But we 
submit to you the regretable fact that as a whole we seem to be 



76 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



falling far behind in this great work of our Master. We are not 
keeping this phase of our work up to the high standard set along 
other lines. 

2. — We herewith present the following facts gleaned from the 
report of the President of the North Carolina Lutheran Sunday 
School Association, as presented to your Committee: "The fourth 
annual meeting of the North Carolina Sunday School Association 
was held on Friday night, August third, in connection with the 
Lutheran Summer School for Church Workers, at St. Andrew's 
Lutheran Church, Hickory. About sixty delegates were present. 
By vote of the Convention the Constitution of the Association was 
so amended as to provide for holding the annual meeting at some 
date other than that of the Summer School for Church Workers. 
It was further decided that all our schools making application, and 
paying the annual dues, shall be considered members of the Asso- 
ciation, and entitled to representation on the floor at the annual 
meetings. The following officers were elected for the year: Pres- 
ident, Homer L. Lyerly; Vice President, Prof. G. R. Patterson; 
Secretary, Miss Beulah Lyerly; Treasurer, Herman A. Brown." 

The report of President Lyerly shows considerable progress made 
in organizing the Sunday School work of the Synod. We note es- 
pecially, and commend, the interest manifested in the regional 
and district conferences being championed and sponsored by the 
Association. We likewise note, with sincere appreciation, the ac- 
tivity of the Association in sponsoring and promoting Leadership 
Training Schools in the various districts of the Synod. Ten such 
schools have been, and are being held throughout the Synod this 
year. 

3. — Your Committee calls the attention of Synod to the tremen- 
dous importance attaching to the work of the Sunday School in 
the life and educational program of the Church in this modern 
age; especially since many people are almost, if not entirely de- 
pendent upon the Sunday school for their knowledge of holy things. 
And, Brethren, if we fail to give them the pure Word of God, 
in such form and manner as they are able to receive it, and appro- 
priate it, during the Sunday school hour, we may lose forever our 
chance to gather these additional souls for the Master. 

Your Committee consider time allotted for study in the program 
of our schools to be entirely out of proportion to the responsibility 
thrust upon the Sunday school. Usually but One hour is allowed; 
and often more than one-half of this is devoted to other than the 
teaching function. In many instances our schools are still manned 
by un-trained, inexperienced, or ill-prepared officers and teachers. 
Therefore be it recommended and resolved: 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 77 



1. — That all pastors and congregations be urged to give more 
serious attention to the teaching function of the Church 
through the Sunday school. And, whereas this work is so im- 
portant and vital, and the time for doing it so short, that our 
Sunday schools be encouraged: (a) To use a minimum of their 
time in opening and closing programs, announcements, etc., 
and that the maximum of time be devoted to the teaching of 
the Word. (b) That in order to effect this saving of time, 
congregations and Sunday schools be encouraged either to ab- 
breviate, or co-ordinate and combine their opening and closing 
programs so as to avoid re-duplication and unwarranted repe- 
tition. 

2. — That Synod looks with keen disapproval upon the alarming 
and growing tendency on the part of many people to disre- 
gard the worship hour in the Church — The Service — and to 
substitute for it mere Sunday school attendance; and that our 
pastors be urged to call attention to this dangerous habit, and 
evil practice, and to remind our people that Sunday school 
attendance, though commendable, vital, and necessary, dare not 
be substituted in the Christian's life for regular and faithful 
attendance upon the Divine Services. 

3. — That all congregations be urged to give more serious atten- 
tion to the training of efficient officers and teachers for the 
school, and that all present, and prospective, teachers in our 
schools be urged to avail themselves of the opportunities of- 
fered by The Parish and Church School Board of the U. L. C. A. 
for Teacher Training work; and that, wherever possible, these 
persons be urged to work for credit, so that when they remove 
from one congregation or Sunday school to another, the pastor 
and school authorities may more readily discover those persons 
who are really trained and prepared to teach in the Sunday 
school, and Week Day Bible Schools, of the Synod. 

4. — That all congregations that have not already done so be urged 
to give more serious thought to the provision of suitable quar- 
ters and satisfactory surroundings for the teaching work of 
the Church School. 

5. — That, since this is the 400th anniversary of the publication of 
Luther's Smaller Catechism, and since the truth as presented 
in this precious little handbook is indeed the truth of God's 
Word, and is so fundamental to the salvation of immortal 
souls, and should be more faithfully and thoroughly taught 
to all our children, that, the Sunday schools of our Synod be 
and are hereby urged to join in the celebration of the 400th 
anniversary of the publication of the Catechism by placing it 
in the Junior and Intermediate Departments of the Sunday 



78 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



school, at least as supplemental matter for study, beginning 
with the second quarter of this Sunday school year. 
6. — That we commend the work of the Parish and Church School 
Board of the U. L. C. A. through its Southern representative, 
Rev. S. White Rhyne, for their efforts to assist us in the train- 
ing of more efficient teachers and officers, and in our endeavor 
to raise the standard and rating of our Sunday schools. And 
that we commend, also, the work of the North Carolina Lu- 
theran Sunday School Association to all our congregations 
and Sunday schools, and urge them to affiliate themselves 
with it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. O. LIPPARD,

J. P. BURNS.

Report of Committee on Summer School for Church 

Workers 

The Summer School for Church Workers was held at Lenoir 
Rhyne College August 1 to 10, 1928. The school was fortunate 
in having the use of the equipment at Lenoir Rhyne College, so 
admirably adapted to the work of the Summer School. The com- 
mittee wishes to acknowledge its indebtedness to the Luther League 
and the Women's Missionary Society for their hearty cooperation 
in making the school a success. 

The following teachers did most excellent work: Mrs. C. K. Lip- 
pard, Primary Teacher Training, 118 pupils; Miss Clara Sullivan, 
Junior Teacher Training, 44 pupils; Mrs. Viola Odell, Intermediate

Report of Committee on Inner Missions 

We your Committee on Inner Missions make the following re- 
port : 

We note with gratitude that splendid growing work of our par- 
ish helpers; that of Miss Cora Jeffcoat, of the Watauga Parish, and 
that of Miss Nellie Park of the Andrews Parish. We also note 
with much interest the untiring efforts of Miss Alice Watkins in 
the Watauga Parish. These parishes are to be congratulated on 
having the splendid aid of these self-sacrificing servants of God on 
their territory. 

It is a regrettable fact that our Lutheran Church in the South 
has not done more of this kind of mission work. The State and 
Associated Charities in our cities and other organizations are 
making wonderful strides in work of this nature. Our sister de- 
nominations around us have laid much emphasis upon this kind 
of work and have greatly profited thereby. As a result of our 
slowness in doing work of this kind, other denominations and or- 



82 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



ganizations have thousands of names on their books that ought to 
be on Lutheran Church books. 

Why not a Lutheran Orphans' Home in North Carolina? Why 
not a Lutheran Old Folks' Home? Why not a few good Lutheran 
Hospitals? 

While we have been negligent in the past in work of this nature, 
and while we do not have at present Inner Mission institutions 
within the bounds of our Synod, it is very gratifying to note 
from the Treasurer's report, from congregational reports, and 
other sources, that Inner Mission interest is growing among our 
pastors and people from year to year. 

We note from the Treasurer's report that our Synod contributed 
during the year past: 

To the Orphan's Home, Salem, Va. : 

Current Expense $5,172.88 

Campaign Fund 178.34 

To the Lowman Home, White Rock, S. C 718.88 



$6,070.10 



Your Committee highly commends the work of Inner Missions 
to all our pastors and congregations and would urge that reports 
of all such work be sent to the Committee on Inner Missions. 
"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my 
brethren, ye have done it unto me." 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN L. MORGAN, Ch'm, 



E. R. LINEBERGER, 
W. H. LEFSTEAD. 



The Report was adopted. 



Report of Committee on State of Church 

Your Committee on the State of the Church begs to report as 
follows : 

1. — The duty of sending out blanks for reports above, was dis- 
charged by mailing to the pastors 320 blank forms. At the 
time this report was prepared 127 had been returned with 
answers. 

2. — A careful reading of the reports gives the information, that 
there is a growing activity in Christian work; attendance upon 
all the services of the Church shows an increase. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 83 

3. — The reports show a growing interest and appreciation of the 
festival seasons of the Church, for they are used to empha- 
size the significance of the festivals — a period of evangelization. 

4. — The condition of the Sunday schools indicates a hearty growth, 
as they are splendidly attended and in them is found the litera- 
ture and music of the Church. In some instances growth would 
be greater if the schools had all the equipment of an up-to-date 
building. The progress of the times calls for the Church to 
keep step, and if possible, forge ahead. 

5. — The time honored custom of as thorough catechization as pos- 
sible is found in practically all the congregations. Evangelistic 
work is done by teaching which always brings better and 
more lasting results. 

6. — The various societies of the Church are doing a most praise- 
worthy work for they are training the future members of the 
Church how to do the work of the Church and to conduct its 
finances successfully. 

7. — Under the head of finances is found a variety of answers, but 
most answers state that the apportionment in full has not been 
paid, and assign as a cause, and it may be a good one, the 
amount is too large. The question may be raised as to whether 
a faithful effort has been made. But whether it is too large, 
too small, or just right, many congregations are commended 
for raising the entire apportionment, and all are to be praised 
for the noble effort of coming to the help of the Church, when 
there is such a spirit of restlessness and materialism manifest 
everywhere. On the subject of "Finance" may the committee 
voice the opinion: That never in the history of the Church has 
she stood in greater need of money and stalwart, strong, reso- 
lute service as she does today. Never has she been so sorely 
pressed and tried as today, and the effort of drawing the 
world into the Church goes on daily and unremittingly. The 
Church is militant today. 

8. — The Church has had to solve many serious problems other than 
financial. The reports show that some of the patient, toiling 
pastors have found their young people caught in a current, 
which moves them, drifters, and so unstable. No adequate 
remedy has been found. This drifting is a result of the ma- 
terial conditions which are upon us, which are believed to be 
a backwash of the world war. The restlessness on the part 
of our young people who seem to be seeking something, is a 



84 Proceedings op United Evangelical 



serious problem and is deplored: they are called upon to study 
their lives and faith by a firm adherence to The Word of Life.

Report oi Committee on Lutkeran Literature 

We, your Committee on Lutheran Literature, submit the fol- 
lowing report: 

For the year 1928 there were 1,340 copies of The Lutheran com- 
ing into the N. C. Synod as against 1,672 for the year 1927, show- 
ing a decrease of 332. 

For the year 1928 there were 2,150 copies of the North Carolina 
Lutheran as against 2,650 for the year 1927, showing a decrease 
of 500. 

For the year 1928 there were 1106 copies of Lutheran Men as 
against 960 for the year 1927, showing an increase of 146. 

For the year 1928 there were 1745 copies of Lutheran Woman's 
Work as against 1700 for the year 1927, showing an increase of 45. 

For the year 1928 there were 608 copies of the Luther League 
Review as against 325 for the year 1927, showing an increase of 
283, and 653 copies of the Luther League Topics for 1928 as 
against 75 copies for 1927, showing an increase of 578. 

For the year 1928 there were 726 copies of Lutheran Young 
People as against 619 for 1927, showing an increase of 107, and 
1,809 copies of Lutheran Boys and Girls for 1928 as against 1,518 
for 1927, showing an increase of 281. 

For the year 1928 there were 147 copies of The Foreign Mission- 
ary as against 150 for 1927, showing a decrease of 3. 

For the year 1928 there were 320 copies of the Hebrew Lutheran 
as against 180 for 1927, showing an increase of 140. 

You will note from these figures that there was a considerable 
falling off of subscriptions to The Lutheran and The North Caro- 
lina Lutheran. As to The Lutheran the explanation may be in the 
fact that the reading matter is too heavy for the average layman 
and on subjects in which they have no particular interest. How- 
ever, this does not explain the 500 decrease to The North Carolina 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 85 



Lutheran, which is filled with items of interest, locally. The 
explanation of the decrease of subscriptions to both The Lutheran 
and The North Carolina Lutheran may be in the fact that the 
country is flooded with socalled religious literature coming from 
the non-denominational press, bearing no denominational stamp 
on it, cheap in price and cheap in reading matter, but which ap- 
peals to many people. We should ever keep the worth and value 
of our own publications before our people and try to guard them 
against the cheap worthless publications in circulation. 

You will also note a slight increase in subscriptions to Woman's 
Work and Lutheran Men. This is commendable from one view- 
point but the very fact that each organization in the Church has 
its publication may be drawing the interest of both men and women 
from The Lutheran and the North Carolina Lutheran. 

You will also note a splendid increase in copies of all literature 
coming to the young people. This, surely, indicates a growing 
interest of the young people in this literature and in the Church, 
which is a hopeful sign. 

We also ask that Mr. R. C. Counts, our southern representative 
of the United Lutheran Publication House, be heard at this time, 
or such other time as the Steering Committee may designate. 
Respectfully submitted,

Report of Lowman Home 

The year 1928 has been a year of successful progress at the Low- 
man Home. There have been evidences of a broadening and a 
deepening of interest on the part of the people in our churches, 
but not great evidence yet that this work of mercy is consciously 
upon the hearts of many. 

The service given during the year has been to 40 persons, classi- 
fied as follows: Aged 23, Crippled 1, Epileptic 6, Feeble-minded 
10. Of these 16 were men and 24 were women. These people have 
come to us from the states of Virginia, N. C, S. C, and Ga. Of 
those served by the Home during the year 34 were Lutherans, 
2 Baptist, 2 A. R. P., 1 Episcopal, 1 Presbyterian. 

During the year there have been 4 removals from the Home, 
2 by death and 1 by dismissal and 1 by temporary withdrawal. 
There have been 9 admissions within the year. The oldest person 
in the Home is 98 and the youngest is 12, average age 56. The 
service given by the staff has been faithful, efficient and highly 
satisfactory. There are six persons in the Home who give full time 
service to the care of our people and there are three persons em- 
ployed regularly on the farm, orchards and gardens. This does 
not include the faithful and efficient superintendent, Mr. C. E. 
Hotinger. The income from farm orchards and gardens makes 
that department self-supporting after supplying the greater part 
of all needed food for the Home family. The poultry farm is one 
of the most profitable operations in our entire organization. Con- 
tributions are needed from the churches for the support of the 
serving staff in the Home itself, for up-keep of buildings, for 
furnishings and for additional buildings. 

The Board has held but one regular meeting within the year. 
That was the annual meeting held on March 7, 1928. At the meet- 
ing the organization resulted in the election of Dr. W. H. Greever, 
Columbia, S. C, President; Rev. C. W. Cassell, Luray, Va., Sec- 
retary; Mr. R. A. Yoder, Columbia, S. C, as Treasurer; Mr. C. E. 
Hotinger as Superintendent and Dr. W. H. Greever, Mr. P. H. 
Haltiwanger and Mr. P. C. Price, all of Columbia, S. C, as the 
Executive Committee. No questions of policy having come up and 
no items of expansion not anticipated and authorized by the Board 
at its annual meeting, the business of the Board has been cared 
for during the year by the Executive Committee. 

The chief developments made at the Home within the year are 
the erection of a modern dairy barn and fencing, a farm tenant 
house, the clearing of new land and the erection and equipment 
of a splendid laundry and cannery building. 

The donation of a suitable lot for the erection of a new church 



Proceedings of United Evangelical 



at White Rock, authorized by the synods a year ago, has been 
made, to the Bethel Lutheran congregation at White Rock, which 
congregation was recently formed by the union of Bethel, (High 
Hill), congregation and Mt. Vernon congregation at White Rock 
under the name of Bethel Evangelical Lutheran Church. Plans 
are now well under way for the erection of a creditable brick 
church on the lot donated, on the East side of the Lexington High- 
way, almost opposite the main buildings of the Home. Such a 
church as is proposed would be of great value to the Home and 
we are giving practical cooperation in the effort made to secure it.

In comparison with the Balance Sheet of June 30, 1928 (three 
years ago) it will be noted that the Capital funds have increased 
from $41,655.40 to $68,647.11 an increase of $26,991.71 during this 
period based on book values. 

Your attention is directed to the following statement from the 
report of Lybrand, Ross Bros, and Montgomery, auditors, in their 
report dated October 8, 1928, and covering operations for fiscal 
year ending June 30, 1928. 

"It is evident that the real estate and buildings are recorded 
at less than their replacement values and we suggest that you con- 
sider the desirability of having these assets reappraised and the 
accounts adjusted accordingly." 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. A. YODER, Treas. 

The needs of the Home are enumerated as follows: 

1. — Intelligent interest on the part of all of our people for which 
we offer to furnish full information; and prayerful interest, 
produced by serious thought of the need of the service of mercy. 

2. — Financial support for those who willingly give their lives in 
sacrificial service to the afflicted and helpless ones. Provision 
should be made by the synods for systematic, regular, depend- 
able income for this purpose. 

3. — Contributions in larger sums for the erection of additional 
buildings. With 30 applications now on the waiting lists and 
with all our space filled, we should have at least two more 
dormitories at once for service already offered (to cost about 
$15,000.00 each) and one or two other buildings of different 
character for service sorely needed but not yet offered by our 
institution. 

4. — Friends of means who will make annuity gifts or remember 
the Home in their will. 

Sincerely, 

W. H. GREEVER, Pres. of Board.

At the time of this report the children in the Home are divided 
among the Synods as follows: 

GIRLS BOYS 

Virginia Synod 36 25 

North Carolina Synod 20 15 

South Carolina Synod 9 6 

Georgia Synod 2 S 

During the year 12 girls and 8 boys have been received into the 
Home. Nine girls and six boys have been placed in homes or po- 
sitions of training, but are still under the supervision and advice 
of the Superintendent. It is the purpose of the Home, as far as 
possible to place boys and girls leaving the Home, in good Chris- 
tian homes, and where they will get the bes't training possible. 

The approximate cost per month of operating the Home during 
the past year was $2,245.21. The approximate cost per child per 
month for the past year has been $22.44. 

These expenses must be met by the contributions of the congre- 
gations and Sunday schools, and in order that the Home may be 
adequately financed, it is very important that the Sunday schools 
and congregations of our Southern Church make regular monthly 
offerings. 

During the past year the following Sunday schools have made 
monthly or quarterly contributions: 

MONTHLY QUARTERLY 

Virginia Synod 27 10 

North Carolina 9 12 

South Carolina 8 1 

Georgia 3 

The amount contributed by Sunday schools, various organiza- 
tions, and congregations of the different synods during the year 
are as follows: 

North Carolina Synod $ 6,588.17 

South Carolina Synod 1,799.88 

Virginia Synod 4,859.34 

Georgia Synod 479.51 

Mississippi Synod 77.17 



$13,804.07 



There are still outstanding pledges on the Building Fund to the 
amount of $31,306.35, of which amount the North Carolina Synod 
has outstanding $13,668.79. Only $1,850.92 was received during 
the year from the whole Southern Church to apply on the Building 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 93 



Fund. The Home is paying interest on notes to the amount of 
$27,500.00, and during the past year $1,650.00 has been paid out 
in interest on these notes. The Home earnestly requests the Synod 
to recommend some way whereby payment on these outstanding 
pledges may be met. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. LUTHER SIEBER, President. 



Report of Board of Trustees of the Lutheran Theo- 
logical Southern Seminary 

It is gratifying to report to you that the work of our Theological 
Seminary is progressing with encouragement and satisfaction. The 
health and earnestness of the student body and the untiring efforts 
and efficiency of the Faculty are reasons for gratitude and in- 
creasing hope. 

We wish to call special attention to the consecration and activ- 
ity of our students. We have at no time seen a student body of 
finer type, both as to ability and consecration, than we now have 
in our Seminary. Columbia has many institutions and organi- 
zations where religious services are needed and desired. Our stu- 
dents are in close touch with the whole situation and rendering 
valuable services at many places. 

The annual meeting of the Board of Directors of the Lutheran 
Theological Southern Seminary was held in the Voigt Building 
of our Seminary, Columbia, South Carolina, May 15, 1928. Of- 
ficers were elected as follows: Rev. H. A. McCullough, President; 
Rev. C. A. Freed, Vice-President; Rev. J. L. Yost, Secretary; 
Mr. F. Wm. Cappelmann, Treasurer. 

Since the last report, your Board had problems of more than 
usual importance to deal with. 

On February 2, 1928, Dr. W. H. Greever filed with us his resig- 
nation as a member of the Faculty and as Executive Secretary 
of our Seminary, same to become effective as soon as necessary 
adjustments could be made. The Executive Committee of the 
Board held two meetings dealing with this and other things claim- 
ing attention. Said Executive Committee formulated and sub- 
mitted to the Board the following recommendations which were 
adopted: 

"(1) That the resignation of Dr. Greever be not accepted. 
(2) That in lieu of his present position with the Seminary, he 
be elected to a full time professorship, designated as the 



94 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

Chair of Religion and Ethics, and also as Executive Secre- 
tary. 
(3) That Dr. Greever be given leave of absence from class room 
duties for such time as the Board deem wise in order that 
he may complete the Endowment Appeal, said appeal to be 
continued along the financial plan indicated in Dr. Greever's 
report to the Board, and that the time for the termination 
of the Appeal be fixed at December 31, 1929." 

In addition to the adding of a full time fourth professor, the 
Board increased the remuneration of each member of the Fac- 
ulty $100. 

The teaching during the first semester of this session is being 
given by three professors, Dr. Voigt, Dr. Bell and Dr. Horine. At 
present Dr. Greever is giving all his time to field work. But in the 
second semester all four members of the faculty will teach. 

The Dean's last report to the Board showed an enrollment of 
forty-one students; eighteen from North Carolina, fifteen from 
South Carolina, seven from Virginia, and one from Georgia. The 
ten members of the Senior Class, having successfully completed 
the prescribed curriculum of studies, were recommended and ac- 
cepted for graduation. The Dean further reported that "we are 
approaching the centennial of the founding of the Seminary in 
1930. It is planned by most of the Lutheran bodies in this country 
to make 1930 an Educational Year with a view to a forward move- 
ment in higher education, and it would seem to be timely for our 
Board to take steps towards a special observance of that year." 
In response to this, plans are in progress for such observance. 

The present session of our Seminary opened September 19, 1928, 
with an enrollment of forty-two students; eleven in the Junior 
Class, fourteen in the Middle Class, and seventeen in the Senior 
Class. This graduating class of seventeen will be the largest ever 
sent out from the Seminary. 

Reports from the Executive Secretary, Dr. W. H. Greever, show 
that there has been diligent and continuous visitation to churches 
and individuals throughout our territory, in the interest of the 
$300,000.00 Building and Endowment Fund, with such success 
as general conditions might lead us to expect. There has been 
a universal expression of interest and purpose to provide the funds 
asked, but depression in business and many unpaid pledges to 
other causes have been offered in many cases as reasons for delay 
in definite action. At the present, the buildings are all paid for, 
the endowment fund is probably about one hundred thousand 
dollars, with an additional one hundred thousand pledged, and 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 95 



with very definite prospects on half of the final one hundred 
thousand. It is expected that this work can be completed, at least 
in the form of pledges, within the year 1929, and the hearty co- 
operation of all churches is asked to that end. 

The work of the Executive Secretary in recruiting men for the 
ministry and for our Seminary, has been fruitful as the present 
enrollment shows, and as is indicated by the fact that only a few 
men from our churches are in other Seminaries. Cooperation in 
this work is asked also, especially in view of the evident necessity 
for an enlarged home mission program in our territory. 

The Treasurer, Mr. F. W. Cappelmann, gives the following finan- 
cial statement: 

"The report of the Treasurer for period May 9, 1927, through 
May 14, 1928, shows receipts of $11,805.89 and disbursements of 
$12,098.12, a loss of $292.23. The statement for the previous year 
showed a deficit for that period of $3,111.45, which indicates that 
an improvement was made. 

"The Building and Endowment Fund for period May 2, 1927, 
to May 14, 1928, showed receipts of $20,734.29 and disbursements 
of $19,166.77, leaving a balance on hand May 15, 1928, of $1,567.52. 
The Board directed that the appeal be continued. 

"Some of the regular Endowment Fund of the Seminary is still 
in the form of lands in possession obtained through foreclosure 
of mortgages. As soon as conditions are proper, efforts will be 
made to sell these lands. Some of the lands are rented but some 
are unproductive. It is hoped shortly that income will be paid 
upon the Henson bequest. 

"Recent annuity bonds issued cover $1,000.00 from Miss Rebecca 
R. Gray, Senoia, Ga.; $1,600.00 from Miss L. Katherine Gray, 
Senoia, Ga.; $2,000.00 from Miss Ida Gray, Senoia, Ga., and $500.00 
from Miss Catherine E. Miller, Winchester, Va., which funds will 
increase the regular endowment." 

In view of the actions taken by some Synods and contemplated 
action by others relative to an educational appeal for other insti- 
tutions during 1930, and in view of the further fact that so many 
of our congregations have failed to take action or make a definite 
pledge to our Seminary Endowment Appeal, we urge that our 
Seminary appeal be given right of way for 1929 that she may 
reach her goal, vacate the field and cooperate with other educa- 
tional institutions whose worthy appeal begins in 1930. 

H. A. McCULLOUGH, President.

5. — Petition of Board for Special Meeting of Synod. 

The United Lutheran Church of America having designated the 
year 1930 as Educational Year, and in view of this, The United 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina at its last meeting 
held at Winston-Salem, N. C, February, 1928, instructed the Board 
of Trustees for Educational Institutions to work out a plan in be- 
half of education in our Synod and present the same to Synod. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 97 



Acting upon this instruction, the Board in session May 17, 1928, 
authorized the Chairman to appoint a committee to study the edu- 
cational situation in our Synod, to plan for the interests of Lenoir 
Rhyne College, and North Carolina College (Mt. Pleasant Col- 
legiate Institute), and report to the Board. The Chairman named 
the following to serve on this committee: Revs. L. A. Thomas, 
V. C. Ridenhour, F. L. Conrad and Messrs. J. A. Moretz and W. 
K. Mauney, of Trustees. 

The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions in called 
session September 17, 1928, did hear, receive and consider the re- 
port of said committee. The following recommendations for the 
approval of Synod were adopted and are hereby presented for its 
consideration and authorization: 

I. For Lenoir Rhyne College — 

(a) The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions rec- 
ommends that Synod authorize a campaign for $300,000.00 
for Lenoir Rhyne College, to be put on in the year 1930. 

(b) In anticipation of 1930 financial effort, and that Lenoir 
Rhyne College may have advance help needed for entrance 
into the Southern Association of Colleges, the Board of 
Trustees for Educational Institutions hereby requests the 
Synod to underwrite $100,000.00 for Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege, and assume payment of interest on same semi-annu- 
ally, beginning January 1, 1929, and that the first pro- 
ceeds of the 1930 campaign be used to reimburse Synod 
for the principal. 

II. For North Carolina College (Mt. Pleasant Collegiate Insti- 
tute) — 

The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions recom- 
mends that Synod authorize a campaign for $100,000.00 
for North Carolina College (Mt. Pleasant Collegiate In- 
stitute) at the same time as that for Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege and that so much of this amount as may be needed, 
be used for present indebtedness, the remainder to be 
used for permanent endowment. 

A motion carried, That it is the sense of the Board that only 
one campaign be conducted for the two institutions but that the 
pledge cards should be drawn that the subscriber may designate 
the Institution which is to receive his gift. When no designation 
is made, the pledge shall be divided 3 to 1 for Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege and North Carolina College respectively. 



98 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



It was agreed that the 1930 campaign be sponsored and directed 
by an executive committee appointed by the Board of Trustees 
for Educational Institutions. 

The action of the Board would request the proper authority of 
the Board to petition the proper authorities of Synod to call a 
meeting of Synod as early as practicable, that the Board may make 
report to the same. 

PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD, 
SECRETARY OF THE BOARD. 

Acting upon the foregoing authority and request, I, W. J. Boger, 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions, 
do hereby respectfully petition Rev. J. L. Morgan, President of 
the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina to call 
a meeting of Synod for the purpose hereintofore set forth and re- 
quested by said Board of Trustees. 

Respectfully, 

CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD. 
Sept. 21, 1928. 

The Petition of the Board was duly forwarded to the President 
of Synod. 

The Executive Committee of Synod acting on this Petition, called 
a Special Meeting of Synod to be held in St. John's Church, Salis- 
bury, N. C, Oct. 30, 1928. 

After a full, free and frank discussion of the Board's Report 
the Synod adopted the same. And authorized the President and 
Secretary of Synod to execute a Note to Lenoir Rhyne College 
in the sum of $100,000.00 bearing interest at the rate of 6% per 
annum beginning Jan. 1, 1929, and to run two years. 

The President and Secretary promptly executed the Note of 
Synod for $100,000.00 to Lenoir Rhyne College and delivered the 
same to the President of the Board of Trustees. The Note was 
placed with the Securities of the College. 

II. Mount Amoena Seminary. 

This Institution is definitely closed. 

The Executive Committee of the Institution has in charge the 
liquidation of the property. Some negotiations have been carried 
on with the County Board of Education of Cabarrus County, also 
with the town of Mt. Pleasant. Nothing definite has as yet been 
accomplished. 

Mt. Pleasant is using the basement for a grammar school, pend- 
ing efforts to purchase the property. They propose to pay a small 
rental. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 99 



The admitted debt February, 1928, is $7,564.80, as follows: 

(1) Cabarrus Saving Bank $2,500.00 

Interest for four years 600.00 

(2) J. H. C. Fisher 415.00 

(3) Holy Trinity Church 2,500.00 

Interest on above 1,549.80 

$7,564.80 

The insurance on the property expired Dec. 23, 1928. Arrange- 
ments for renewal of insurance to the amount of $12,000.00 was 
made. 

III. North Carolina College (Mt. Pleasant Collegiate 
Institute) . 

The Collegiate Institute authorities report the school in satisfac- 
tory condition as to students and teachers. 

Col. G. F. McAllister and five helpers constitute the teaching 
staff. The personnel is the same as last year with one exception. 

The health of the students has been good in the main. The 
epidemic of Influenza caused the closing up of the school a few 
days earlier for the holidays. 

The application and progress of the students are satisfactory. 
The great handicap is lack of funds which is felt at every turn. 

The debt of $20,000.00 has not been reduced in the past year. 
The interest is being paid. 

It is sincerely hoped that the 1930 Campaign recommended 
by the Board and authorized by Synod at its Special Session Oc- 
tober 30, 1928, will relieve the Institution of this burden.

IV. Lenoir Rhyne College. 
1. — General. 

The 1927-1928 Session of the College was uniformly good. Be- 
cause of lack of room no canvassing was done, yet all of our avail- 
able room was taken by the old and new students. It showed faith 
in the Institution. 

A large class was reported for graduation in June, 1928. 

The health of the students was good and application com- 
mendable. 

2. — New Buildings and Repairs. 

The opening of the three new buildings in the Spring of 1928, 
relieved the cramped condition of all departments of the College. 
Both professors and students began to feel that they were at a 
real college. 

The Rhyne Administration Building, Mauney Hall and the Re- 
fectory are the best of their kind and represent the very best 
thought and plans for convenience and service. 

Nothing but words of praise are heard of these buildings both 
by experts and by friends. 

During the Summer both the Science Building and Highland 
Hall were thoroughly renovated and brought up to date in equip- 
ment. Oak View Hall was placed on the west side of 3rd Street 
and the lower floor was fitted up for the Music Department. New 
drives and walks were laid out, the campus improved, sown in 
grass and set with shrubbery. 

Not only is our College a place for service but also a place of 
beauty. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 101 



3. — Students. 

Three hundred and twenty-one students are enrolled this year. 
184 are Lutheran. Eight states are represented. 

4. — Faculty. 

A number of changes were made in the faculty. The new mem- 
bers are as follows: 

H. O. Andersen — Professor of Modern Languages. 

Geo. S. Moyer, Ph.D. — Acting Professor of Sociology and Social 

Economics. 
Miss Glenna Cloyd — Assistant in Education and Psychology. 
Fredrich Stanley Smith — Head of Music Department. 
Miss Alberdena Wall — Teacher of Piano. 
Miss Margaret E. Alleman — Teacher of Voice. 
Miss Ann L. Hankey — Dean of Women. 

5. — Leave of Absence. 

Prof. V. V. Aderholdt is doing advanced work at the University 
of Michigan and Prof. M. Craig Yoder at the University of N. C. 

6. — Summer School. 

A very successful Summer School was conducted by Prof. G. R. 
Patterson. Perhaps this school does more than any other feature 
to keep our school in touch with the educational forces of the State 
and to give our graduates recognition as teachers in the State 
Schools. 

7. — Entrance into the Southern Association of Colleges. 

The greatest forward step for the College in many a day was 
admittance into the Southern Association of Colleges, December 
7th, 1928. The College is now recognized by the highest accrediting 
agency as Standard. Our graduates can now enter any school of 
higher learning for special work without question. The Board 
of Trustees is grateful to the officials of Synod and the people 
for their sustaining the recommendations of the Board and making 
this step possible. 

8. — Needs. 

Lenoir Rhyne College is growing and going and therefore has 
needs. 



102 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



There is urgent need for a Fine Arts Building and Auditorium 
and a Library. Soon the space in the Administration Building 
occupied by the Library will be needed. 

Will not some of our Lutheran groups follow the example of 
Mr. Rhyne and the Mauneys. 

9.— 1980. 

Now that Synod has designated 1930 as Educational Year and 
authorized a Campaign let every one begin to think and act now. 
Successful effort in 1930 will project our educational interests for- 
ward in a real way and be a fitting step in making our College 
the power house for our Church.

Supplemental Report 
II. Mont Amoena Seminary. 

For as much as the Seminary property is in process of liquida- 
tion and producing no revenue, neither the Executive Committee 
nor the Board has any funds to pay insurance, therefore the Board 
petitions Synod to assume the insurance on this institution to the 
amount of $12,500.00 for three years. The premium will be $375.00. 

III. Mt. Pleasant Collegiate Institute. 

For as much as the tuition and fees of this institution barely 
pay other current expense, and for as much as the interest from 
the small endowment must go to help meet interest on the building 
debit, the Board petitions Synod to assume the insurance on this 
institution to the amount of $50,000.00 for three years. The 
premium will be about $1,300.00. 



Report oi Committee on Church Institutions and 
Education 

Your Committee on Church Institutions and Education has faith- 
fully considered the information at hand concerning Synod's re- 
spective institutions, and submits for Synodical action the fol- 
lowing: 

I. Lowman Home for the Aged and Helpless. 

1. — We note with gratitude the continued growth of this institu- 
tion of mercy, located at White Rock, S. C, both as to physical 
equipment of the plant and as to service rendered. But we 
note also the crying need of further enlargement of the plant, 
in order to meet the urgent needs and to care for all deserv- 
ing persons seeking entrance. 

2. — We hereby express our appreciation of the faithful services 
of the Board of Trustees, of Superintendent C. E. Hotinger, 



106 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



and of his corps of helpers for their very efficient services in 
behalf of the institution and of the comfort of the inmates. 
(For recommendation see next item of the report) 

II. The Lutheran Orphan Home of the South. 

1. — This institution of mercy, located at Salem, Va., has enjoyed 
another successful year in caring for the orphans committed 
to its charge. The Board of Trustees, Superintendent Rev. T. 
A. Graves, and his corp of helpers have been untiring in their 
efforts to render efficient services in their respective positions. 

2. — We note with regret the slowness of contributors to the build- 
ing fund to meet their pledges. This is both embarrassing to 
the management and expensive to the institution and should 
be remedied. 

Recognizing the need of increased information being conveyed 
to our congregations, and a deepening in the cultivation of our 
people in their support of this kind of Christian service, we rec- 
ommend the following, applicable to both the Lowman Home and 
the Orphan Home: 

(1) That all pastors be urged to bring the cause of both these 
institutions repeatedly before their Sunday schools and con- 
gregations. 

(2) That the Chairman of the Inner Mission Committee, together 
with the Presidents of the respective Conferences, be consti- 
tuted a committee, who shall see that the interests of both 
these institutions be faithfully presented to all of our con- 
gregations, and that some feasible plan be adopted by which 
regular and systematic contributions shall be made for their 
support. 

(3) That with respect to the Orphan Home, the same committee 
advise with congregations, urging their speedy payment of 
all past due pledges on the building fund. 

III. The Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. 

1. — We note with pleasure that our Theological Seminary, located 
at Columbia, S. C, has enjoyed another successful year, and 
that the work of the institution has been further advanced by 
strengthening the faculty. 

2. — We feel a sense of gratitude for the continued increase in the 
number of young men offering themselves for preparation to 
serve in the Master's Vineyard. 

3. — We note with pleasure the increase of the endowment fund. 
But we also note that the Executive Secretary states the need 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 107 



of an additional $100,000.00 for the Endowment Fund. We 
recommend that all congregations, which have not yet re- 
sponded to the appeal of the Executive Secretary, be urged 
to do so during the present year. 

IV. Mont Amoena Seminary. 

We note that no disposition has yet been made of the property 
of Mont Amoena Seminary. Because of the evident deterioration 
of the property, and because of the accumulation of interest on 
the indebtedness, we recommend: 

(1) That the committee in charge close the matter as speedily as 
possible, with safety to the interests of Synod. 

(2) That the request of the Board of Trustees that Synod pay the 
insurance on the property to the amount of $375.00 be granted. 

V. The Collegiate Institute. 

1. — We note with pleasure that the Collegiate Institute, located 
at Mt. Pleasant, N. C, has enjoyed another successful year, 
under the efficient management of Prof. G. F. McAllister and 
his capable faculty. The popularity of this preparatory school 
is indicated by the fact that thirteen states and two foreign 
countries are represented in the student body. 

2. — This institution likewise has needs. Among the needs are 
specially mentioned: an increase in the endowment fund, an 
athletic field, a gymnasium, an auditorium and a society hall. 
Well may the Synod and the friends of the institution rally to 
the cause when the Educational Campaign is put on in 1930. 

We recommend that the request of the Board of Trustees that 
Synod pay the premium on the insurance on the property to the 
amount of $1,300.00 be granted. 

VI. Lenoir Rhyne College. 

1. — We are happy to state that Lenoir Rhyne College, located at 
Hickory, N. C, has enjoyed an unusually noteworthy year — 
possibly the most historic since the founding of the institution. 
The completion of three splendid buildings, the renovation of 
others, and the admittance into the Southern Association of 
Colleges, are enough to make the year 1928 famous for the 
college. 

2. — We hereby express our appreciation of the faithful services, not 
only of the Board of Trustees, but also of the President, and 



108 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



his very efficient faculty, .by which these achievements have 
been won. 
3. — In view of the pressing need of other new buildings, increased 
endowment and other improvements, we recommend that all 
our congregations anticipate the proposed campaign for the 
cause of education during the year 1930, and make all neces- 
sary preparation for its successful promotion. 

Finally, Be it resolved that we, the United Evangelical Lutheran 
Synod of North Carolina, hereby heartily pledge our loyal support, 
both moral and financial, to all our Church institutions.

active part in seeing that all subscriptions in their congregations 
are paid promptly. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. P. FISHER, Chairman.

Since it is essentially necessary to press the collection of above 
subscriptions, especially since we wish to clear the field for our edu- 
cational campaign in 1930, I wish to recommend that you appoint 
a committee, whose duty it will be to stay behind the proposition, 
seeing that all churches pay as promptly as possible.

A rising vote of thanks was given Chairman J. L. Fisher and 
his splendid corps of workers for their fine services in putting the 
Campaign across. 



Report of the Archivist 



During the past year the Archives of Synod have been preserved 
in the vault of the Daniel E. Rhyne Administration Building of 
Lenoir Rhyne College. Most of the material has been catalogued 
so as to be easily accessible. A complete record is kept in a card 
index file. 

This report should be considered in the light of the report of 
Archivist last year (Minutes, pp. 75-77), since we here mention 
only the additional material which has been received since that 
time. 

Last summer the Archivist of the Luther League of Synod 
asked permission to store the historical material of the League 
with the Synodical Archives. This permission was granted, and 
the Archivist received the material sent in. 

The following additional items have been received: 

1. — Fifty-one copies of North Carolina Minutes, ranging from 
1846 to 1918. Forty-nine of these were given by Rev. B. S. 
Brown, Jr., the other two by Rev. P. E. Monroe, D.D. This 
gives a total of 288 copies of North Carolina Synod Minutes 
covering seventy-two sessions from 1844 to 1918, the file being 
complete with the exception of six years (1845, 1851, 1858, 
1865, 1873). 

2. — A complete file of the Minutes of the Tennessee Synod, do- 
nated by Rev. L. L. Lohr, D.D. 

3. — One copy of "History Evangelical Lutheran Tennessee Synod", 
by Rev. Socrates Henkel, D.D. 

4. — Two copies of "History North Carolina Synod", by Cox and 
Bernheim. 

5. — Two Historical Documents, prepared by Rev. L. L. Lohr, D.D.: 

a. "Extract from the Transactions of German and English 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina and Ad- 
jacent States in the Year of our Lord 1820." 

b. "Life of David Henkel." 

6. — Lutheran Church Quarterly, Vol. I, donated by Rev. P. E. 

Monroe, D.D. 
7.— Minutes of United Lutheran Church for 1922, 1924, 1926, 1928, 

making that file complete to date. 



118 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



8. — North Carolina Lutheran, vols. IV, V, VI, through the courtesy 
of the Editor, Rev. A. R. Beck, D.D. This file is complete 
to date: 

The Archives of Synod have passed the state of infancy, and 
are from year to year growing larger and more useful. They are 
becoming more and more a historical library. All the material 
which is collected and preserved will be of historical value in any 
age of the life of the Synod. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. N. YOUNT, Archivist. 

The Report was adopted as read. 

Synod adjourned with prayer by Rev. E. A. Shenk. 

Wednesday, February 6, 1929, 7:30 P.M. 

Vespers were conducted by Rev. J. D. Kinard. 

Rev. A. J. Stirewalt, D.D., returned missionary from Japan, de- 
livered the address of the evening. It was an interesting outline 
of the encouraging features of our mission work in the Sunrise 
Kingdom. 

Thursday, February 7, 1929, 8:45 A.M. 
Matins were conducted by Rev. L. E. Blackwelder. 



Report of Committee on Memorial on Election of 
Delegates to tke United Lutheran Church 

The Report of this Committee was received for consideration. 
The following resolution was adopted in lieu thereof: 

Resolved, That in the selection of the delegates to the next Con- 
vention of the United Lutheran Church in America, no man, ex- 
cept the President of Synod, who has attended one or more Con- 
ventions of the United Lutheran Church at the expense of Synod,

Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 121 



Report oi Necrologist 



Once more the silver cord has been loosed and the golden 
bowl been broken in our midst. The venerable Doctor 
Geo. H. Cox, our most highly esteemed and dearly beloved 
brother, has received the summons and has gone to be 
forever with the Lord whom he loved and faithfully served 
so long. December 7, 1928, at the age of ninety years 
and four months, his tired body, worn with years and 
labors, yielded up his immortal soul to God. 

Dr. Cox was a direct descendant of the Pilgrim Fathers 
and was born and received his early education in the 
cultural environs of Boston, Mass. In his early manhood 
he came south and here learned to know and love the 
Lutheran Church with which he united and to which he 
gave his long and useful life. He studied Lutheran The- 
ology under the late Doctor A. J. Brown and was ordained 
to the Lutheran ministry by the Holston Synod in Imman- 
uel Church, Sullivan county, Tenn. 

He served the Knox Pastorate in Tennessee until 1889, 
when he came to North Carolina where the remainder of 
his long and faithful ministry was spent. He states that 
the love of souls moved him to enter the ministry and his 
earnest and faithful work as a preacher and pastor evi- 
denced the truth of his words. He served the North Caro- 
lina Synod long and well, eight years as its efficient and 
honored President. 

Dr. Cox wrote and published a number of valuable doc- 
trinal and historical pamphlets, which will serve to pre- 
serve the interesting pioneer history of the Lutheran 
Church in North Carolina. 

Dr. Cox was, as a pastor, as an author, as a leader, 
an outstanding Christian man among Christian men. 

I recommend that two pages in our Minutes be dedi- 
cated to his memory, one for this report and one for a 
halftone of his picture. 

I recommend that this report be adopted by a rising 
vote. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. J. SOX, Necrologist. 



122 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



This Report was adopted by rising. 

The pastors and delegates remained standing while Rev. C. A. 
Brown led in prayer. 



Report of Committee on Architecture 

We, your Committee on Church Architecture, desire to report 
that in view of the fact that there has been no occasion for a 
meeting of the committee since last convention of Synod, the com- 
mittee has no report to make. 

F. L. CONRAD, Chairman. 

The Report was adopted, also the following: Resolved, That 
when a congregation of this Synod proposes the erection of a 
new church or religious education plant, they first confer with 
the Committee on Church Architecture of this Synod, and with 
advice and counsel of the same, adopt a plan for such building. 



Report of Committee on Boys' Work 

The Committee on Boys' Work submits the following: 
The Luther League in Convention at Gastonia last August 
placed in their budget for this year an item for $100.00 to be 
added to $125.00 formerly designated for application on its pro- 
gram for teen-agers, especially for the boys of this age. At a 
recent meeting of the Executive Committee it was decided to raise 
$1,000.00 for the purpose of establishing a mountain camp for 
the young people of the Synod. A committee has been appointed 
to select a site and complete plans for an encampment to be held 
this coming Summer. 

Since this initiative has been taken by the Luther League this 
committee felt that its duty was to act in an advisory capacity 
and to encourage the efforts of our young people. 

We recommend that the Synod approve the Luther League's 
action and commend them for this forward step. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. NORRIS, 

C. E. LUTZ, 

E. H. KILLIAN. 

The Report was adopted. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 123 



Report of Fraternal Delegate 

As the fraternal delegate to the South Carolina Synod, I beg to 
report that I attended the meeting of that Synod at Trinity Church, 
Greenville, S. C, January 21-23, 1929, and conveyed the greet- 
ings of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Caro- 
lina to the Evangelical Lutheran Synod of South Carolina. 

Your delegate was most cordially received and was given the 
assurance of the desire of the South Carolina Synod to magnify 
the cordial relations existing between us. 

The meeting of the Synod was marked by a spirit of unity of 
action and the eagerness to enter larger spheres of activity. 

The Synod received 64% of its apportionment during 1928. 

The most far reaching step taken was the decision to raise 
$500,000.00 for the endowment of Newberry College during the 
year 1930. 

Respectfully submitted, 

P. E. MONROE. 

The Report was adopted. 



Report of Committee to Nominate Fraternal Delegate 

We, your Committee to Nominate a Fraternal Delegate, desire 
to submit the following, namely, that Rev. E. Fulenwider, D.D., 
represent this body at the next annual convention of the South 
Carolina Synod. 

W. H. DUTTON, 

E. R. TREXLER, 

F. S. YOUNT. 
This Report was adopted. 



Report of Committee on Congregational 
Constitutions 

Your Committee on Congregational Constitutions wishes to re- 
port that no requests for copies of Constitutions, nor inquiries con- 
cerning same, have come into our hands during the year. There- 
fore, your committee has nothing to report. 
Respectfully submitted, 

C. R. PLESS, 
F. M. SPEAGLE. 
The Report was adopted.

Report of Committee on Sckool for Pastors 

Your representative wishes to report that he met with repre- 
sentatives from the South Carolina and Georgia Synods in the city 
of Columbia, S. C, on April 24, 1928, at which meeting it devel- 
oped that no representative was authorized to put his synod under 
any financial obligations. As no funds were available to defray 
the necessary expenses which would be necessarily incurred in 
holding a school, it was resolved: "That the holding of an inter- 
synodical school for pastors at the Seminary in Columbia be post- 
poned until a working basis for cooperation may be secured, in- 
cluding the financing of the joint school by the synods concerned." 
Respectfully submitted, 

GEO. H. RHODES. 

This Report was adopted. 

Rev. N. D. Yount, Secretary of the Alumni Association of the 
Seminary, gave out the information that a Pastors School would 
be conducted next summer at the Seminary, under the auspices 
of the Association. 



Report of Delegates to the Erie Convention 

A full delegation of ministers and seven out of our quota of 
nine lay delegates attended the Sixth Biennial Convention of the 
United Lutheran Church in America, at Erie, Pa., October 9-16, 
1928. There was a good attendance at this Convention from all 
the constituent synods. The meetings were harmonious in spirit, 
but characterized by free expression of views for the advancement 
of the work of the Church along safe but progressive lines. The 
esteem in which the old officers are held by the Church was evi- 
denced in reelecting them, by an almost unanimous ballot, for an- 
other biennium, to the respective positions of trust which they 
have held ever since the United Lutheran Church was organized. 
These officers are: 

Rev. F. H. Knubel, D.D., LL.D., President. 
Rev. M. G. G. Scherer, D.D., Secretary. 
Dr. E. Clarence Miller, Treasurer. 

The following items, which were adopted at that Convention, 
were referred to the constituent synods for their approval and 
cooperation therein, namely: 



Lutheran Synod op North Carolina 125 



1. — Concerning relief for hurricane stricken Lutherans. 

"Inasmuch as the heaviest losses suffered by Lutherans in the 
hurricane area have fallen upon those connected with the United 
Lutheran Church in America, and 

"Inasmuch as these losses in many instances will be hard to 
bear, therefore be it 

"Resolved, That we urge an immediate response by all our con- 
gregations to the appeal of the Board of American Missions for 
their relief. 

2. — Steivardship Month. 

"That the month preceding the every member canvass be set 
aside as Stewardship Month, during which special emphasis shall 
be placed on the stewardship of (a) time, (b) personality, (c) in- 
fluence, (d) talents, (e) life, and (f) money emphasized only 
incidentally. 

"That every congregation in the United Lutheran Church in 
America be asked to promote a definite program of stewardship, 
(a) in the Sunday School, (b) in the Missionary Society, (c) in 
the Brotherhood, (d) in the mid-week services, (e) in the Luther 
League, (f) in the Light Brigade, the official head of each to 
direct the work, under the leadership of the pastor." 

3. — Campaign for Increased Membership. 

"The United Lutheran Church in America adopts as a goal for 
every constituent member, congregation and Synod, a net increase 
in the communicant membership of ten per cent each year." 

"That the Committee on Evangelism, in conjunction with the 
synodical presidents, proceed with this campaign promptly, assign- 
ing each synod a quota of not less than ten per cent of its com- 
municant membership reported in 1928." 

"That the Church papers be requested to give full publicity to 
this movement by publishing from time to time the quota assigned 
each synod and the result achieved in comparative order, together 
with the names of all congregations meeting the quota." 

The Convention authorized the issuing of a new edition of the 
Common Service Book, in which at least a part of the stanza : 
of the hymns will be inserted between the staves of the music. 
Other changes in this edition are also contemplated which should 
make it a more serviceable book for our congregations. 

The Church will receive with interest the announcement that a 
"Jubilee Edition" of Luther's Small Catechism is soon to be pub- 
lished as a fitting celebration of the Quadri-Centennial of that 
little book for the year 1929. The issuing of this book is being

cooperated in by The Norwegian Lutheran Church, Joint Synod 
of Ohio, Augustana Synod, Danish United Church, Synod of Iowa, 
Lutheran Free Church and The United Lutheran Church in 
America. 

The Commission on Survey of Theological Seminaries was con- 
tinued, with the hope of arriving at a conclusion in regard to that 
work of the Church which will be most satisfactory for all inter- 
ests in the various sections of the United Lutheran Church as 
a whole. 

Considerable attention was given to the work of Home and For- 
eign Missions, It was noted that the Board of Foreign Missions 
has been reorganized, and that Rev. P. W. Koller of the Synod of 
Ohio has been elected as Executive Secretary, and that special 
efforts will be made during this biennium to pay off the debt of 
the Foreign Board, which debt was brought about chiefly by the 
purchase of certain mission properties which had to be surrendered 
by German Lutheran Bodies as a result of the World War. The 
Home Board has been operating during the past year on a balanced 
budget, until the last few months when money had to be borrowed 
in order to meet obligations. Larger gifts are needed in order to 
extend the work as it should and must be done. 

The apportionments for the United Lutheran Church for 1929 
will be the same as for the past year, namely $2,200,000.00, while 
the amount of this sum apportioned to our Synod is $52,019.00. 
However, the budget for 1930 and 1931 will be $2,400,000.00, an 
increase of ten per cent, which has been assumed will be about 
on a par with the numerical increase of the whole Church for 
that time. The United Lutheran Church figures out her appor- 
tionments on the basis of communing members, however it is left 
to each Constituent Synod to figure its apportionment among its 
congregations on whatever basis it may find most satisfactory. 

It should be noted here that the Brotherhood of the United Lu- 
theran Church held its Biennial Convention also in Erie just prior 
to the time of the Church Convention. This was also an inspiring 
meeting and evidenced a growing interest on the part of the lay- 
men of the Church for progressive service for the advancement 
of the Church. It is with interest that we note that one of the 
Vice Presidents elected at this meeting is from our Synod. The 
officers are: 

Mr. C. J. Driever, President, Chicago, 111. 

Mr. A. H. Sittloh, Vice President, Richmond, Ind. 

Mr. H. E. Isenhour, Vice President, Salisbury, N. C. 

Mr. Theodore Johnson, Vice President, Seattle, Wash. 

Mr. W. E. Weier, Secretary, Toledo, Ohio. 

Mr. C. W. Howe, Treasurer, Chicago, 111. 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 127 



The next Biennial Convention of the United Lutheran Church 
will be held in Milwaukee in the year 1930, which will be the 
Quadri-Centennial of the Augsburg Confession. 

Respectfully submitted for the Delegation, 

J. L. MORGAN, Chairman. 



This Report was adopted.

D. E. Rhyne of Lincolnton, who will today round out seventy-

usefulness; and that it gratefully appreciates his splendid ser- 
vice to the Church through generous gifts to needy congrega- 
tions, to educational institutions, and for the large interest 
he has shown in the work of Lenoir-Rhyne College. 

4. — Resolved, that we extend to the Concord Tribune, the Charlotte

sincere thanks for the large space given in their columns and

Resolution Regarding Changes in Names of Parishes

of Synod, the Presidents of the several Conferences, and one lay- 
man from each conference appointed by the President of his Con- 
ference, be instructed to make such changes in the names of Par-

report such changes to the Executive Committee for approval in 
time for use in the Bulletin of the 1930 Convention of Synod.

Report of the Examining Committee 

Your Examining Committee begs leave to report as follows: 
Item 1. — Your Committee has received petitions respectively 
from A. K. Hewitt, A. W. Lippard, and Samuel Sox, students at 
our Theological Seminary at Columbia, S. C, stating that each 
has received and accepted a Call to become a Pastor in the United 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of N. C, and petitions examination 
by your Committee and ordination by Synod. We find these young 
men well qualified to bear the Holy Office and recommend these 
brethren to The Ministerium for Ordination. 



132 Proceedings of United Evangelical 

Item 2. — A letter from J. Frank Davis addressed to the Presi- 
dent of Synod stating that he has completed the regular and neces- 
sary course at the Theological Seminary in Columbia, preparatory 
for entrance into the Lutheran Ministry and hereby makes appli- 
cation to the North Carolina Synod for Ordination. Your Com- 
mittee wishes to report that student Davis appeared before them 
and sustained a creditable examination. He has received a Call 
to become a Pastor but has not yet accepted the Call. Your Com- 
mittee recommends to the Ministerium that so soon as Mr. Davis 
accepts a Call to become a Pastor that the President of Synod 
arrange for his Ordination. 

Item 3. — A letter from members of the Senior Class in our The- 
ological Seminary stating that they hold memberships in congre- 
gations of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Caro- 
lina, and petition examination by your Committee and Ordination 
by the Synod, such authorization contingent upon their gradua- 
tion from the Seminary, and the reception and acceptance of a 
regular Call to the Gospel Ministry. We find these young brethren 
well qualified for the Holy Office and recommend that their request 
be granted, and that the President of Synod make the necessary 
arrangements. These students are: C. F. Kyles, D. L. Heglar, 
A. L. Hahn, J. A. Seaboch, and J. E. Walker. 

Item 4. — Your Committee has a letter of Honorable Dismissal 
from the Synod of Kansas and Adjacent States granted to the 
Rev. R. L. Patterson, D.D., by the President of that Synod, heart- 
ily commending the Brother to us. Dr. Patterson appeared before 
the Committee for examination, and was found to be in full accord 
with the doctrines and practices of our Synod. 

We recommend that he be received as a member of our Synod 
and his name enrolled on our Synodical Record in accordance with 
regulations of Synod.

150 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Upon the request of the President, the Secretary stated the 
purpose of this Special Session of Synod as follows: 

Purpose of Special Session of Synod 

This Special Session of the United Evangelical Lutheran Synod 
of North Carolina has been called by the proper authorities of 
Synod on the request of the Board of Trustees for Educational 
Institutions. 

The Executive Committee of Synod met in St. John's Lutheran 
Church, Salisbury, N. C, October 5, 1928, to consider and act 
upon the Board's request for a Special Session of Synod. Accom- 
panying this request were certain recommendations adopted by 
the Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions, which the said 
Board desires to lay before the Synod for its consideration and 
action. After lengthy consideration of this matter by the Execu- 
tive Committee, the Secretary was instructed to issue a call for 
a Special Session of Synod to meet in St. John's Lutheran Church, 
Salisbury, N. C, October 30, 1928, at 10 A.M. The Executive 
Committee, however, did not attempt to pass on the merits of the 
recommendations themselves, thereby leaving them to be consid- 
ered and acted upon by the Synod without prejudice one way or 
another by the Executive Committee. 

So, the purpose of this Special Session of Synod is twofold: 

First. — To consider and act upon the Recommendations of the 
Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions, adopted by the said 
Board September 17, 1928. 

Secondly. — To consider and act upon Apportionment Tables for 
1929. 

By motion this statement of the Secretary was accepted as the 
purpose of this Special Session. 

The Chairman of the Board, Rev. W. J. Boger, D.D., was then 
asked to lay before the Synod the Recommendations of the Board 
referred to in the Secretary's statement, which he did as follows: 

To the Honorable President of the United Evangelical Lutheran 

Synod of North Carolina, Rev. J. L. Morgan, D.D. 
Greeting : 

The United Lutheran Church of America having designated the 
year 1930 as Educational Year, and in view of this, the United 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod of North Carolina at its last meeting 
held in Winston-Salem, February, 1928, instructed the Board of 
Trustees for Educational Institutions to work out a plan in behalf 
of education in our Synod and present the same to Synod. 

Acting upon this instruction, the Board in session May 17, 1928, 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 151 



authorized the Chairman to appoint a Committee to study the 
educational situation in our Synod, to plan for the interests of 
Lenoir Rhyne College, and North Carolina College (Mt. Pleasant 
Collegiate Institute), and report to the Board. The Chairman 
named the following to serve on this Committee: Revs. L. A. 
Thomas, V. C. Ridenhour, and F. L. Conrad, and Messrs. J. A. 
Moretz and W. K. Mauney. 

The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions in called 
session September 17, 1928, did hear, receive and consider the re- 
port of said Committee. The following recommendations for the 
approval of Synod were adopted and are hereby presented for its 
consideration and authorization: 

1. — For Lenoir Rhyne College: 

(a) In anticipation of the 1930 financial effort, and that Lenoir 
Rhyne College may have advance financial help needed for en- 
trance into the Southern Association of Colleges, the Board 
of Trustees hereby requests the Synod to underwrite $100,- 
000.00 for Lenoir Rhyne College, and assume payment of in- 
terest on same semi-annually, beginning January 1, 1929, and 
that the first proceeds of the 1930 campaign be used to reim- 
burse Synod for the principal. 

(b) The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions recom- 
mends that Synod authorize a campaign for $300,000.00 for 
Lenoir Rhyne College, to be put on in the year 1930. 

2. — For North Carolina College (Mount Pleasant Collegiate In- 
stitute) : 

The Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions recom- 
mends that Synod authorize a campaign for $100,000.00 for 
North Carolina College (Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute) 
at the same time as that for Lenoir Rhyne College and that 
so much of this amount as may be needed, be used for present 
indebtedness, the remainder to be used for permanent endow- 
ment. 

A motion carried, that it is the sense of the Board that only 
one campaign be conducted for the two institutions but that the 
pledge cards should be so drawn that the subscriber may designate 
the institution which is to receive his gift. When no designation 
is made, the pledge shall be divided 3 to 1 for Lenoir Rhyne Col- 
lege and North Carolina College respectively. It was agreed that 
the 1930 campaign be sponsored and directed by an executive 
committee appointed by the Board of Trustees for Educational 
Institutions. 

The action of the Board would request the proper authorities 
of the Board to petition the proper authorities of Synod to call 



152 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



a meeting of Synod as early as practicable, that the Board may 
make report to the same. 

W. J. BOGER, Chairman of the Board. 

This report was received for consideration by item. 

Messrs. W. K. Mauney and W. J. Moretz were granted the privi- 
leges of the floor during the consideration of this report because 
they were members of a special committee of the Board to draft 
these recommendations. 

By motion action on part 1 (a) was deferred until the other 
items of the report had been disposed of. 

By motion each speaker was limited to ten minutes, and the 
chair ruled that no speaker would be heard the second time until 
all who desired had been granted the privileges of the floor. 

Synod adjourned for an hour's recess. 

October 30, 1928, 2 P.M. 

Devotions were conducted by Rev. E. H. Kohn, D.D. 

By motion Rev. P. D. Risinger, seriously ill in the Charlotte 
Sanatorium, and the aged pastors of Synod were remembered in 
the prayers of Synod. 

Part 1 (b) was adopted. 

Part 2 with paragraph immediately following was adopted. 

Part 1 (a). The action on this item was the following Reso- 
lution unanimously passed: 

Upon recommendation (a) under Lenoir Rhyne College, pre- 
sented by the Board of Trustees for Educational Institutions. 

It was upon motion resolved by the United Evangelical Lutheran 
Synod of North Carolina in special meeting assembled at Salisbury, 
N. C, on October 30, 1928, that recommendation (a) for Lenoir 
Rhyne College be and is hereby adopted and the President and 
Secretary of Synod are hereby authorized and directed to execute 
and to deliver to the said Board of Trustees for Educational Insti-

ber 1, 1928, payable on or before December 31, 1930, bearing in- 
terest from January 1, 1929, at the rate of six per centum per

Apportionment Tables for 1929 

The following recommendations by the Executive Committee con- 
cerning Apportionment Tables for 1929 were adopted: 

In keeping with the notice given in the call for this special meet- 
ing of Synod, your Executive Committee, to whom the matter of 
Synodical Apportionments for the year 1929 was referred, desires 
to offer the following recommendations: 

1. — That the total amount of the regular apportionments for the 
year 1929, both for the local Synod and for the United Lutheran 
Church be the same as that for the year 1928, plus $2,000.00 
for interest on college note. 

2. — That these amounts be apportioned among the several congre- 
gations of the Synod on the same basis as that for the year 
1928, with the understanding, however, that changes may be 
made in given cases where local conditions would seem clearly 
to warrant such adjustments. 

3. — That the committee having this matter in charge be author- 
ized to get out a pamphlet showing the needs of the Church 
and the objects for which the apportionment funds are to be 
used, and to supply our congregations with the same together 



154 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



with any other valuable literature on the subject which may 
be available, with a view to awakening a more intelligent in- 
terest in the hearts and minds of all of our people in this 
part of the Church's work. 
4. — That group meetings be arranged for different parts of the 
Synod where pastors and people may come together and con- 
sider ways and means of making the Every Member Canvass, 
this Fall, a real success, to the end that the full amount of 
Synod's budget may, if possible, be pledged at this time. 

J. C. DIETZ, Secretary. 

A rising vote of thanks was extended to St. John's Church and 
its membership for their hospitality in offering us the use of their 
church building for this Special Session of Synod. 

By motion the reading of the Minutes was dispensed with, and 
the Secretary was authorized to certify to their correctness. 

Synod adjourned, the President leading pastors and delegates 
in the use of The Order for Closing Synods found in the Com- 
mon Service Book. 

J. L. MORGAN, President, 
Attest : 

J. C. DIETZ, Secretary.

174 Proceedings of United Evangelical 



Standing Resolutions 

1. — Resolved, that the Secretary of Synod be instructed to codify 
the Standing Resolutions of Synod and print the same from 
year to year upon the last page or pages of the Minutes. 

2. — That the Secretary be instructed to send copies of the Min- 
utes of Synod to the State Historical Society at Raleigh, The 
Library of the University of North Carolina, and to all Grade 
A Colleges in the State. (1925 Minutes, page 51) 

3. — Whereas, it appears that many confirmed Lutherans of the 
North Carolina Synod are listed as "Non-resident"; And 
Whereas, many of these are inactive due to the fact that no 
obligation is felt toward the church in whose midst they 
reside but of which they are not members; 

Therefore, be it Resolved: That this Synod go on record as 
favoring, and it strongly and vigorously urges its members, 
when removing from the territory of the church where mem- 
bership is held into another parish, to secure a letter of trans- 
fer immediately, and thus become regularly identified with the 
work of the church located in the new home, and that they 
move their transfer as consistently as they do their trunk, 
and as often, if necessary. (1928 Minutes, page 140) 

4. — Resolved, that when a congregation of this Synod proposes 
the erection of a new church or religious education plant, that 
it first confer with the Committee on Church Architecture of 
this Synod and with the advice and consent of the same 
adopt the plan for such building. 

5. — By motion the Secretary was instructed to leave out of the 
body of the minutes all titles except Rev., Mr. and M.D. 

6. — Resolved, That it be the duty of the Committee on Church 
Institutions to meet at least once annually not later than the 
day before the opening of Synod, to review and study the 
Reports and present as part of their report suitable abstract 
and summary statement of the work along these lines for 
the year; and that, in as far as possible members of this 
committee or the committee as a whole, secure further needed 
information for the purpose of this report by visiting the 
institutions and attending Board meetings. (1924 Minutes, 
page 124) 

7. — Resolved, That it be the duty of the Committee on the Pres- 
ident's Report to meet the day before the opening of Synod 
so as to have its report ready for consideration as soon as 
Synod is organized. (1924 Minutes, page 124) 



Lutheran Synod of North Carolina 175 



8. — Resolved, That this Synod in its Synodical Communion, ob- 
serve the old custom of the use of the common cup in the 
distribution of the wine. (1924 Minutes, page 124) 

9. — Be it recommended to congregations, in view of the peculiar 
fitness of the Gospel lesson for the day, that the 18th Sun- 
day after Trinity be generally observed as Jewish Mission 
Sunday. (1927 Minutes, page 77) 
10. — Your Committee, to whom was referred the duty to recom- 
mend a plan of procedure in regard to the ordination of can- 
didates to the ministry who have not yet completed their the- 
ological course at the seminary at the time of the meeting of 
Synod, beg leave to submit the following recommendations: 

1. Whatever mode of procedure is adopted by the Synod shall 
be provisional until the United Lutheran Church shall rec- 
ommend a uniform practice among the Synods, 

2. Students of Theology who have received and accepted calls 
and who apply for ordination shall appear before the Ex- 
amining Committee, be recommended by them to the Min- 
isterium and by the Ministerium to the Synod; and the 
Synod shall then direct the President to associate himself 
with several ministers, not less than two to perform the act 
of ordination at the time and place he shall deem advisa- 
ble, giving preference, if practicable, to a meeting of one 
of the conferences. (1927 Minutes, page 126)
